Jamestown, NY – The workings of the Audubon Nature Center depend on the dedication and commitment of a strong volunteer crew.
In the past year, nearly 300 volunteers worked more than 12,000 hours to support the Nature Center’s mission to connect people to nature and promote environmentally responsible behaviors. On any given day, volunteers can be seen working on the trails, leading school groups, managing the membership program, feeding animals, and more.
With school programs reaching nearly 19,000 students and a similar number of visitors each year, the Nature Center could not survive without the dedication and commitment of a strong volunteer crew.
For the volunteer, there are many benefits too. Volunteering provides an opportunity to use skills and pursue interests, meet new people, and become part of a community.
