Audubon Nature Institute is the nation's largest collection of nature-themed attractions. Our internationally acclaimed facilities welcome over two million visitors each year. Audubon relies on our volunteers to celebrate nature with these guests, and Audubon Greeters are our front-line representatives making our first—and best—impressions.

Being an Audubon Greeter is not only an important job, it is also fun! Greeters enjoy working in a beautiful facility filled with wild animals and get to meet interesting people from all around the world. Apply today to come work on the wild side as an Audubon Greeter.
