***Volunteer registration will go live Monday, January 9, 2023 at 12 pm HST

***Please read the below information prior to registering.

***Number of volunteers allowed may be limited and dependent on the following:

  • Site access permit allows general volunteers to join site leaders

  • How many volunteers the site is able to accommodate

  • ***Hosting volunteers is covid-19 dependent and could change if state/county rules change during event months. If this happens the coordinator will reach out to all registered volunteers to say general volunteer participation is canceled.

***As we return to normal operations in 2023 accomodating large volunteer groups will be on a case-by-case scenario depending on site availabilities.

***Volunteer registration is live for all three events!


  • be willing to attend the full event which runs from 8am to 12noon
  • check out the resources page for the volunteer data sheet prep documents
  • note this will require arriving at your site prior to 8am for initial instructions
  • register for each Ocean Count event date that you wish to volunteer
  • register for each person; one form only accounts for one person this is to ensure number of volunteers are accurate and within the limits. This includes children.
  • have an accurate contact email(preferred) and/or number for your registration to receive any important event updates
  • If you do not select a site in the form this does not mean you are registered! It means your registration is incomplete.
