Part-time Volunteers Needed at Edisto State Park

The Environmental Learning Center at Edisto Beach is a one of a kind facility.  Located off of Palmetto Road, it offers a serene experience of the maritime forest and barrier islands.  There is access to Big Bay Creek for recreational fishing and crabbing.  The center focuses on protecting our coastal resources and ACE Basin.  This environment gives a great opportunity to learn of the ecosystems on Edisto Island and other barrier islands.

We are looking for candidates that have a good work ethic and are enthusiastic about learning.  Some responsibilities of a volunteer would include but not limited to, touch tank monitoring, animal husbandry, daily cleaning, and maintenance.  No prior experience is necessary; training will be provided.  There may be opportunities to assist with our educational programs as well.  We are open Tuesday – Saturday 9am – 4pm, we will be willing to work with current schedules.  Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact Samantha Pettit at or 843-869-4430 and fill out a volunteer application.
