Fire Island National Seashore will hold a Volunteer Recruitment Day program Saturday in Patchogue.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Patchogue-Watch Hill Ferry Terminal on West Avenue.

FINS is looking for volunteers to get involved in Fire Island Lighthouse, William Floyd Estate and Fire Island wilderness areas, the National Park Service said in a statement.

“Fire Island National Seashore is recruiting volunteers to assist with a variety of park functions and services ranging from staffing visitor centers and conducting visitor tours and programs, to native plant gardening, monitoring endangered shorebirds and clearing invasive plants,” the statement said.

Information on the volunteer program is available at nps.gov/fiis/parknews/2012-volunteer-recruitment-at-fire-island.htm.
