Volunteer to help
Audubon of the Western Everglades is a volunteer-run organization
and more volunteers are always needed. Individuals and groups can help in
a variety of ways.
For those who like to get out and involved in physical
activities, opportunities exist assisting with programs and field trips,
assisting at special events such as Christmas bird counts, the Southwest
Florida Birding Festival, and participating in wildlife surveys.
Others volunteers assist writing grants or help with membership
information. For additional information about volunteering in any of these
areas, contact Lori Beall.
Volunteers may also help by becoming conservation activists
who will write letters, make phone calls, and attend area meetings and conferences.
For more information about helping in this area, please contact Alan Keller.
An area for volunteers who may prefer to work at home is
researching topics and writing articles for the Audubon of the Western Everglades'
newsletter, the Audugram. For more information about volunteering
with the Audugram, contact editor Lori
The amount of time spent is totally up to the volunteer.
