Join us for a Work Week at Forfar!

IFS will be hosting two upcoming work weeks at the field station in preparation for the 2018 season. These weeks will be dedicated for volunteers interested in helping with work around the station. 
When is it?  
The work weeks will be October 14th-21st, 2017 and December 16th-23rd, 2017.  
What will volunteers be doing? 
Man-power tends to be a limiting factor at the field station so there are always projects!!  Cardo and his staff will work very hard in the off-season completing some large scale projects (plumbing, tree cutting, etc.) but there are plenty of other projects to be completed.  

The primary focus of the October work week will be roofing and roof repairs. The December work week will include miscellaneous projects that will likely be tasks that include painting the outside of all the cabins and wooden structures, brush clearing, and tree removal.

Most of the work being performed will be hands-on physical labor and/or painting. We recommend bringing a pair of work gloves and clothing that you don't mind getting a little dirty!   Volunteers will work ~6 hours a day.  Your evenings will be free to do what you want and there will be one full boat day to go out snorkeling. 
Who can come?
Anyone able-bodied and willing to work hard to improve the field station! If you attend the October work week expect most of the work to be roofing. 
How much will it cost? 
Get yourself to the field station and it's free!  We will cover the lodging and food for the week in exchange for your hard work!
