Event Details

  • Date:

Volunteering at a lighthouse is a lot of fun and hard work! We appreciate the support that volunteers provide to these restoration projects knowing in the future more will come to understand and appreciate the value of lighthouse preservation.


Volunteers to depart from Silver Islet, starting Saturday morning at 9am with a shuttle operating back and forth from Silver Islet until 10am returning around 4pm. Silver Islet departure point parking is limited, carpooling is a good idea.

Bring your own lunch or create something for a potluck style. BOOK HERE

We will be continuing to paint the homesteads, hauling garbage to the tug boat, working on wooden steps, walkways, and addressing our docking area.

Volunteer will need to:

Dress in layers. Wear protective cloths against the elements. Have suitable foot ware for walking, hiking and working. Purchase a membership for the 2019 season- go to ‘Reservations’ on the website. No booking yet will be accepted for this excursion until a later date.

Be prepared to work upon arrival, and enjoy a pot luck picnic lunch.

Here is a clean up that took place at the Trowbridge Lighthouse site last summer.

Dulux Paint Helps

With the help of Dulux Paint we have already managed to get some work done on the Trowbridge Island Lighthouse. Many volunteers helped paint the old keepers duplex dwelling on the exterior. We are working on a project with the Guardian Fund to clean up the site too. Thanks to our dedicated vounteers and to Charelen and Shawn Vansomeren from the Dulux store on Memorial.
