Group Volunteers

A group volunteers at Audubon Nature Institute

PLEASE NOTE: Due to our ongoing host facility preparations for the AZA National Conference in September, our group volunteer opportunities are very limited during the months of June-September 2019. We thank you for your patience with us if we are unable to host your group this summer, and we hope you will consider volunteering this fall!

Audubon Nature Institute welcomes corporate, school, and other volunteer groups to help us celebrate the wonders of nature. Volunteer groups make a powerful impact in our community by helping Audubon complete projects across our parks and facilities.

Group volunteer opportunities are available year-round, although availability is dependent on group size and interests, time of year, and current facility needs. See below to learn more about the parameters and categories for group volunteer opportunities at Audubon.
