Attention Volunteers,

Work weekend is still on but it has been shortened. Friday will still be as planned. Saturday will be shortened and there will be NO OVERNIGHT stays. Everyone will be transported off Gibraltar and be put on the 3:00 and 4:00pm Miller ferry. You will still be provided Friday night pizza, and Saturday breakfast and lunch.

New volunteers are welcome!

Bring your work gloves and help spruce up Stone Lab for the upcoming season at the annual FOSL Spring Work Weekend April 12-14, 2019. Participants are invited to arrive Friday night and stay until Sunday morning or simply come for the day on Saturday. There’s plenty of cleaning, organizing, carrying, painting, moving and digging to do!

Plan to take the 5:30, 6:30 or 7:30 p.m. ferry from the mainland ($15 per adult round-trip). Please visit the Miller Ferry website for possible cancellations before leaving home.

Please RSVP below to help us with event planning and details. Registration is not final until you receive confirmation from a staff member. Registration is required even if you arrange accommodations and meals elsewhere. In an effort to create opportunities for new volunteers, we are limiting registrations to two per family.

Overnight registrations are now waitlist-only, but you’re welcome to join us on Saturday for the day. Please register below to help with meal planning.

Gear to Bring

April weather on Gibraltar is unpredictable and often cold, so check the weather forecast and dress accordingly in clothes that can get dirty. If it rains, we’ll still be working, which makes rain gear a must. Meals, bedding/pillows, and towels will be provided, but please bring toiletries. Rooms may not be heated. Housing is dormitory-style, including bunk beds.
