Hello Volunteer,
Spring is in full swing! I want to send my deepest appreciation to all of you that have helped us get the season off to a strong start. We could not do all we do in spring without your wonderful support. We still need some help to make it to the end of the busy spring season, so please check out the postings below.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Spring Migration
March 9th - May 5th 
Daily 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Spring migration brings thousands of people to the internationally acclaimed Smith Oaks and Boy Scout Woods sanctuaries. We need volunteers to help at both sanctuaries' kiosks with admission and merchandise sales, maintenance of daily sightings lists, and to provide sanctuary information to visitors. Training is given on site so no experience is required!
Presently, we need the most help at the Smith Oaks Kiosk and Boy Scout Woods Sales positions.

April 1st - May 31st (daily)
Early Mornings (start time shifts with sunrise)
Location - Downtown Houston
Join this important community science initiative to help us collect critical data that will help scientists figure out how to prevent migrating birds from mortalities due to building collisions.

Collision monitoring takes place in the early mornings (around 6 -7 am depending on sunrise). Monitors will work in teams of 2-3, patrolling a 2-mile predetermined route around 10 buildings in downtown, collecting data on birds that have been injured or killed by striking buildings.

Volunteers do not need to have expert knowledge about birds to join. Detailed training on collision monitoring and data collection will be provided, as well as what to do with injured or killed birds that are found in the course of monitoring. All the tools and materials needed to perform the job will also be provided.

May 11th
8 a.m. - 11 a.m.
Join Houston Audubon and Houston Parks and Recreation Department to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day! We will gather in Sylvan Rodriguez park and begin at 8am with a bird walk led by Houston Audubon Conservation Specialist and pro-birder Schyler Brown. Then, from 9am-11am we will plant native plants to expand the park's certified Bird Friendly Space.
