Western Cuyahoga Audubon is asking for your assistance. As a volunteer-run and led organization, we count on members and people passionate about birds and habitat conservation to step up and help. Please take a look at the Volunteer Field Trip Coordinator position that would like to have filled in the next couple of months. This position can be filled by one individual, or several people collaborating together.
Volunteer Field Trip Coordinator
Plan Western Cuyahoga Audubon field trips, once a month, throughout the year
Contact and coordinate leaders for the monthly field trips
Schedule field trips on either a Saturday or Sunday
Have knowledge of area parks and birding sites in the Northeast Ohio area
Have knowledge of migration of bird species to be able to coordinate good field trips with the time the birds are in the area (Ex. warblers/songbirds in late April/early May, waterfowl in fall or early spring)
Attend each trip or have an alternate person attend and introduce the leader
Write a short synopsis of the field trip within a couple of days after the trip is over with a list of the species and number of species. The field trip write-up is sent to WCAS platform designer/webmaster.
Good communication skills
Potential to plan longer field trips - perhaps a weekend at sites farther from northeast Ohio
