Assist Houston Audubon's education team with regular maintenance work including tending to the gardens, weeding and pruning in the prairie habitat and wooded areas, maintaining trails and repairing infrastructure; including moving and spreading gravel and repairing boardwalks and viewing platforms as needed. Tasks will also include occasional painting and heavy duty cleaning of the aviaries.

Volunteers of all skill levels welcome, some experience in carpentry, botany, or maintenance is certainly appreciated too!

Houston Audubon will supply all tools, but volunteers should plan to wear proper protective gear, including work gloves, masks, and eye protection as needed.

Mission Statement

To advance the conservation of birds and positively impact their supporting environments.

Description

Houston Audubon is a regional nonprofit conservation, education and advocacy organization that focuses on protecting the natural environment for birds and people. A significant part of our work is owning and managing nature sanctuaries to protect habitat for birds and provide people recreational opportunities in nature. We were accredited as a land trust in July 2017.

Our strategic plan states:

"The flight and song we nurture today defines the quality of life and sense of place we share tomorrow. Houston Audubon aims to inspire a culture of conservation and a way of life that allows us to thrive in harmony with nature. Our vision is the creation of a healthier, more beautiful place to live by leading and nurturing a community that values and supports birds."

Houston Audubon is a financially independent 501(c)(3) charitable conservation organization and is a chapter of National Audubon Society. We operate in an assigned 11-county area surrounding Galveston Bay and including Houston. Our activities extend beyond Houston and its surrounding counties when necessary to accomplish a conservation purpose.
