Space Coast


Join the largest network of Coastal Defenders in the World.  Our volunteers are the core instrument of change, helping to tackle the issues that face our ocean, waves and beaches. 

Our Chapter is a grassroots organization based on volunteers getting involved in activities and using collective action to effect change at the local, state and national levels.  Our beaches are for everyone, and they need you!

Whether you want to physically help with a beach cleanup, man our tent during an event to educate others, attend a monthly chapter meeting presenting ideas, we welcome your help in meeting our goals.   To volunteer, email Fran Buchness at with questions, and to connect you with opportunities. Once you sign up as a volunteer, you will receive emails of upcoming events via our email program, Hubspot.  From the email, you can select if you want to help or attend that event.  You are then requested to accept the waiver from our electronic “Golden” software program.  This eliminates the need for paper signed waivers at each event.   Please visit our Programs Page and Upcoming Events to learn more about our programs and events.
