About is a diverse, supportive, positive community of people who love pigeons and doves. Our Ploughshares Aviary is 100% run by volunteers and we always need help! Are you interested in birds? Do you value quiet and harmony? Can you spare an hour a week? Then WE need YOU!

Every day one of our volunteers visits the aviary, cleans up after the birds, provides fresh water and food and checks on everyone's health. There is always time to socialize with the birds and to observe their delightful behavior, and post videos on our Facebook page.

(Not interested in helping with our aviary? We have lots of other ways to volunteer!)

The commitment is about 1 hour per session; we would prefer volunteers who can commit to once a week for several months. Generally volunteers work solo after a few training sessions with existing volunteers.
