Kids Birding in the Parks
Engaging Schools with the Year of the Hummingbird--Time Sensitive!
Paton Center "Birding Ambassadors"
The Paton Center for Hummingbirds is looking for volunteers who will be willing to engage and greet visitors at this unique and special birding location. Knowing the bird and wildlife around the center is a definite plus, but not a necessity, as we can train you. What you do need is an outgoing, positive personality and a desire to help people connect with birds and Tucson Audubon. We would like volunteers who can serve for at least a 3 hour shift. Contact Luke Safford and Jonathan Lutz for more information.
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.

Monthly Volunteer Highlight
4,952.28 Recorded Hours for 2016!
We have so many wonderful volunteers, and you all work so very hard, it would be a shame not to continue helping Tucson Audubon by recording your volunteer hours! Your recorded hours help Tucson Audubon receive various grants and keep us moving forward as an organization. This year we have had 102 volunteers record their time for a total of 4,952.28 hours. 18 of you have recorded more than 100 hours! Let's agree to double these figures for 2017. Join us on January 26th at 1pm in the Conference Room at the Historic Y for a volunteer orientation to be trained on entering your volunteer hours. I want to recognize Tim Helentjaris and Jill Kelleman for both recording over 200 hours in 2017--if you see them around be sure to give them a hearty "Thank You"!
