Outer Island Opening May 29
Outer Island will be opening for the 2021 season on Memorial Day weekend. To limit the spread of COVID-19, refuge guidelines will still be in place, with no visitors allowed on the pavilion and traffic moving in a clockwise direction around the island. In addition, organized groups will be limited to 10 attendees; kayak outfitters should be especially aware of this guideline. FOI will again be hosting organized groups of 10 on the island to provide environmental education.
If you wish to volunteer on Outer Island (veteran or new), you must complete the online training course, which can be accessed . Two volunteers at a time will be stationed on the island this year. New volunteers need to be teamed with an experienced volunteer for their first two assignments.
