Introduction to Volunteering

The workings of Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) depend on the dedication and commitment of a strong volunteer crew.

In the past year, ACNC had over 300 active volunteers who worked more than 12,000 hours to support Audubon’s mission of connecting people with nature. On any given day, volunteers are seen working on the trails, leading school groups, managing the membership program, feeding animals, and more.

ACNC is presenting “Introduction to Volunteering” from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 16. This introductory training will cover a brief history of Audubon Community Nature Center, review the many facets of the organization in which volunteers are involved, and introduce participants to faces and places at the Nature Center. This information session is appropriate for people interested in volunteering or new volunteers.

Many of the programs and facilities would not be available without the strong support of volunteers. For the volunteer, there are myriad benefits too. Volunteering provides an opportunity to use skills and pursue interests, meet new people, and become part of a community.

Reservations are not necessary but are appreciated. They can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online by going to auduboncnc.org/programs and clicking on “Current Schedule.”

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren.
