Nature Shop Attendant (University Blvd. or Agua Caliente location)
Current Need: Saturdays at Agua Caliente. Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if interested.
Volunteers for the Tucson Audubon nature shops are truly faces of the organization, and often the primary contact between Tucson Audubon and members/the public. A Nature Shop Attendant rings up customers, restocks materials in the shop, answering questions from visitors, and managing the main phone line for Tucson Audubon. A Shop Attendant is responsible, dependable, has some knowledge of birds in Southeastern Arizona, enjoys working in a shop environment and sharing their love of birds and conservation! Opportunities to further your learning about binoculars and birding. 

Important Bird Area: Surveyors and More
This is fun, and really is all about using your birding skills and passion for special site conservation for birds and assisting good wildlife habitat management. We share our data with our partners to contribute to habitat and site conservation, and thus promoting the conservation of essential habitat for our Arizona “species of conservation concern”. For current surveys and other opportunities, visit www.aziba.org or contact the IBA Coordinating Biologist, Jennie MacFarland at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Monthly Volunteer Highlight

October:  Tucson Meet Your Birds

 It was a hot day, but 36 dedicated volunteers worked hard to welcome over 400 visitors to our hidden jewel in the city, Sweetwater Wetlands. Our 12 "Birding Facilitators" were set up around the wetlands showing off Gadwall and Vermillion Flycatchers while more volunteers greeted, made pine-cone feeders with kids, helped at our tables, and showed off top-notch optic gear. We are proud of all of you who helped and it is fun to have so many first-time volunteers.sweetwater_lush_pano
