Become a Dockwalker
Do you enjoy spending time around the harbor? Do you like talking to your peers about boating and how we can keep our waters clean? Then join us and the community of over 500 of your peers to become a certified Dockwalker volunteer! Dockwalkers are volunteer partners who inspire and educate boaters to be environmental stewards while boating. You will learn how to conduct face-to-face education and distribute valuable Boater Kits, an outreach tool with helpful resources to prevent ocean pollution.
Boating is a popular recreational activity in Southern California and most boaters are great stewards of the environment caring for the waters they recreate in. Join us and your fellow boaters to make a difference in our communities! Face-to-face education is a critical way to make an impact. In 2020, The Bay Foundation and our program partners California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways, California Coastal Commission, and the Boating Clean & Green Program conducted five virtual workshops that inspired and trained 105 newly certified Dockwalker volunteers.
2021 Dockwalker trainings will occur on March 27th, April 3rd, May 1st, and June 5th from 10 am – 12:45 pm. If you have been trained in the last three years, you have the option to register for a refresher training on March 20th and April 17th from 10 am – 11:15 am. For more information and to register, please view this flyer and/or visit this link.
If you have any questions about the program, contact Dalia Gonzalez through our volunteer page.
The California Dockwalker program is led by the California Coastal Commission and the California Division of Boating and Waterways’ Boating Clean and Green Program and is implemented in partnership with The Bay Foundation.
