Volunteer Opportunities

There are numerous ways to help out at Audubon Community Nature Center. Some volunteers contribute their time once or twice a week, others once or twice a year. Volunteers at Audubon build bridges, maintain trails, lead walks, assist with mailings, park cars at festivals, help children do crafts, care for our animals, tend our gardens, and a myriad of other things that keep the center running.

While the Nature Center depends on volunteers, there are many benefits to volunteering. It can be a wonderful opportunity to share your talents, learn new things and meet new people. When you volunteer, you’ll join a group of diverse, talented, energetic people that help keep ACNC running smoothly. Discover your place.

New and Existing Volunteers

Audubon Community Nature Center volunteers contribute over 12,000 hours of service per year, and we are grateful to each and every one of them. In an effort to keep our volunteer information up to date, we are asking that all active volunteers complete the Volunteer Responsibility Waiver.                                   

Additionally, we ask that all volunteers review and acknowledge ACNC’s Sexual Harassment Policy which is based on the recently updated New York State regulations.

If you are new to volunteering, please complete the Volunteer Application (see below), and ACNC’s Volunteer Coordinator will contact you shortly.
