Volunteering

Northern Arizona Audubon needs you!

Please don’t be shy! Even if you’re not sure how you can help, give us a call and we’ll talk about ways you can help Northern Arizona Audubon make a difference and achieve our mission of promoting the understanding and appreciation of birds and other wildlife, and the conservation and restoration of their natural habitats. There are a variety of ways you can help this Chapter.

Hospitality – Help plan our social events or show up at our monthly meetings at 6:30 to help set-up chairs and tables, or to bring refreshments.

Come have fun doing battle with Russian Olive at our Page Springs workdays. Or give reign to the Thistle Thug within, and join our Rio de Flag workdays.

Programs – Help find interesting speakers for our monthly meetings.

Education – Work with our education co-chairs on developing educational programs and other outreach opportunities to students.

Conservation – Help us stay informed on local, state & national policies and actions affecting our environment and natural habitats. This might involve reading environmental impact documents, or attending community meetings and other types of events and then sharing what you’ve learned with the rest of the Board and chapter members.

Publicity & Publications – Help us get the word out about issues of concern and chapter activities via newspapers, radio, T.V. and other media. Right now we could really use someone to help us put together a chapter brochure.

Membership – We need someone from Flagstaff to fill our Above the Rim membership chair. This entails meeting and greeting members and visitors at our monthly meetings, helping out at tabling events and doing general new member recruitment. (We even already have a committee member willing to help out at the meetings).

Habitat Restoration – We need folks who enjoy the satisfaction that comes from taking messy to neat. This includes picking up trash, removing exotic invasive plants, planting native plants as well as trail creation and maintenance. The areas we work on vary from Picture Canyon in Flagstaff to Page Springs, south of Sedona.

OR…maybe you have a special skill or idea that we could use (graphic arts, marketing, or carpentry jump to mind). Help out on a committee – you don’t need any expertise, just a willingness to learn.
