Volunteers are needed to help the center make its buildings and grounds more beautiful. The event will take place rain or shine and is guaranteed to be fun. After the hard work, lunch will be provided to all volunteers.

Volunteers are asked to report for registration between 8:30 and 9 a.m. Then, at 9 a.m., volunteers will select a work crew to join. Work will take place from 9:30 a.m. to noon; lunch will be served and prizes awarded starting at noon.

There will be tasks for every age and ability. Participants can choose among work crews assigned to pull non-native plants, plant native seeds and shrubs, spruce up the gardens, pick up trash as part of Audubon’s roadside cleanup effort and possibly others.audubon volunteer
