Volunteers are an important part of any non-profit organization. Would you like to help Alachua Audubon pursue it’s mission (to foster appreciation and knowledge of birds and other native wildlife, to protect and restore wildlife populations and their habitats, and to promote sustainable use of natural resources)? Below are some opportunities that may be of interest to you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you see something that you would like to try.
Festivals – we have an educational booth that we set up at numerous festivals throughout the year. We can always use help setting up, staffing the booth in shifts, and taking it down. We always have experienced board members present so you will not be left on your own. Sound like fun?
Native Plant Garden – we have installed a native plant garden next to our bird banding lab at the Alachua Conservation Trust property off Hawthorne Road. The garden needs regular weeding and watering, especially during the summer months. Volunteer groups meet weekly to work at the garden. Join us for a fun morning with friendly people. You can bring your own tools or use ours. Bring your own gloves and drinking water and wear shoes that can get dirty and wet.
