Audubon Connecticut relies on volunteers to help us achieve our conservation mission. At our State Office, Centers and Sanctuaries, and Important Bird Areas throughout Connecticut, there are many ways to contribute your time, from trail building to bird monitoring to office support. Regardless of your age, interests, or skill level, there is a volunteer opportunity right for you.

Through our State Office, volunteers can assist staff scientists to monitor threatened shorebird populations and conduct bird and plant surveys, as well as provide support to administrative staff.

At our Nature Education Centers, volunteers get involved with everything from native plant gardening to trail building and maintenance, serving as trained Teacher Naturalists in our education programs, getting involved in research and monitoring through our citizen science programs, leading field trips, helping injured wildlife (Sharon Center only), and assisting around the office. With Centers located in Greenwich, Southbury, and Sharon, there is something for everyone!

Through our Bird Conservation Programs, volunteers can engage directly in conservation by adopting an Important Bird Area in their community, participating in bird monitoring programs, and getting involved in other stewardship activities designed to restore or protect these critical areas for birds.

Through our Advocacy Program, volunteers receive all of the information they need to write letters or make phone calls to elected officials, write letters to the editor, attend local meetings on key environmental issues, and other activities that help influence the public policy program.
