- Outdoors: Outdoor tasks include sweeping porches and ramps, trapping and removing packrats, taking trash and recycling to the curb, watering plants and checking irrigation systems, and inspecting the trail system for cholla or other spiny debris that can be raked off the trail.
- Someone experienced with nature photography and slide scanning is needed to sort through a large collection of slides and digitize ones that would be most useful to us.
Restoration Team Member (General)
Support Tucson Audubon's efforts to restore degraded habitats in central and north Tucson. At Simpson Farm, the site north of Marana that we've been restoring for over 10 years, help to plant native grasses. This is a great opportunity to learn about science-based restoration techniques and to see the real impact that these efforts can have, immediate and long term, for biodiversity.

Nature Shop Attendant (University Blvd. or Agua Caliente location)
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.
