At the risk is looking a bit like the classified section of the newspaper, we are offering these fun and worthwhile “Help Wanted” Volunteer needs for your consideration. The pay is beyond counting since they all offer fun and satisfaction as compensation. Get involved: you will enjoy yourself!
NAAS Monarch Waystation/Pollinator Gardens at Page at Springs Fish Hatchery Visitor Center
Even though the hatchery’s visitor center and viewing ponds have been closed to the public, our dedicated crew of volunteer gardeners have been maintaining the Monarch Waystation/Pollinator Gardens on a weekly basis from March to November. There are some new additions: a fence to keep skunks from digging in the garden, another bench, many new native plants for bees and hummingbirds, and enhancements to the parking lot island bed Hummingbird garden.
Due to an illness, we are short one volunteer gardener this year. We need a temporary volunteer gardener to maintain the garden for an average of one Friday per month during July-October (dates vary), but even one or two volunteer visits would be appreciated. This involves light weeding, dead-heading flowers, and watering gardens with a sprinkler. The perks are: you may enjoy the birds and butterflies while you work, and relax to the peaceful sound of moving water.

Bird Survey Coordinator
Our NAAS chapter has 5 separate bird surveys actively being worked at this time. Currently, there is nobody who serves as a coordinator to carry out functions such as tracking progress, verifying that proper reporting is being done, and serving as a liaison between these various survey leaders and this chapter’s Board of Directors. This is a largely administrative position and does not necessarily require good birding skills of field work. Contact: email
