Volunteer BREC April
How are you Spring-ing?
Spring has sprung and we have a lot going on in volunteer land. The upcoming months are filled with plenty of opportunities for groups and individuals. We have several community events and a few new opportunities with Outdoor Adventures. Take a moment to check out our events and opportunities below. For more information about each opportunity contact volunteer@brec.org.


Sunset Paddle [Immediate Need]
Sunset Paddle is and Outdoor Adventure program that allows youth and adults with little or abundant watercraft skills to explore paddling into the beautiful south Louisiana sunset. Volunteers are needed to assist with outfitting participants, registration, event set-up and take down, and assisting participants in and out of kayaks.
This program will take place twice a month April - August Except July). Four volunteers are needed for each month. We strongly prefer if the same four volunteers assist on both dates of each month.
