Jamestown, N.Y. – Have you wondered what it takes to become an Animal Care Volunteer at Audubon Community Nature Center? Maybe you are curious if you need special certification or training to do the job? 

Audubon depends on the dedicated volunteers who care for all their animals and is looking for new volunteers to be part of the team.

On Thursday, June 17, 11:00 a.m. – noon, you are invited to a presentation by Audubon’s Animal Care Specialist Kim Turner.

Along with a number of animal care volunteers, Turner will describe what opportunities are available and the type of training needed. There will be time to talk with the current volunteers, meet the animals, and have all your questions answered. 

If caring for the animals might not be a good fit for you, there will also be information on other ways you can volunteer at Audubon.

Space is limited for this free program. Regardless of vaccination status, face coverings are required for all indoor programs.

Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are appreciated: Call (716) 569-2345 or click here to register.
