Habitat at Home: This program educates people about how to make safe, sustainable bird habitat in yards and neighborhoods. If you care about this initiative then we need your help to visit yards, engage new homeowners, prepare background work, and at tabling events. If you would like to be on the Habitat at Home volunteer team please contact Kendall Kroesen or
to begin engaging our community with us. Our next tabling event will be at Watershed Management during Cyclovia on October 30th from 10 - 3 p.m.
Weekly on Wednesdays - Green Gardeners @ Mason Center
The Mason Center has multiple gardens that need your helping hand in order to grow and thrive as focus points for pollinators, birds, and other desert critters. Activities will include watering, planting, mulching, trimming, weeding and learning about plants and their role in the desert. The team will meet one day a week for 2 hours to get things started. You need no particular skills, just a desire to help and see the fruits of your labor take form. Add a bit of camaraderie to the mix, too. Cynthia Pruett, our past board president, will be your coordinator. The gardens await your help, sign up now.
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.

Monthly Volunteer Highlight
September: Living with Nature Series Kickoff in Tucson
We had a great start to our Living with Nature series on September 12th because of a great volunteer crew! Eight volunteers showed up early, set up the drink station and tables, greeted people warmly as they came in, and created an overall friendly atmosphere. We want to especially thank Tom Richardson and Pauline Loftus as this was their first volunteer experience with Tucson Audubon! Joanna Strohn took some beautiful pictures for us and Deb, Susan, Jean, Catie, and Lynda rounded out our exceptional team. Thank you volunteers for sharing your love of birds and people.
