Volunteer Opportunities

Fresno Audubon Society is always looking for volunteers to help us with our mission. Opportunities include but are not limited to leading bird walks, teaching birding classes, maintaining bird feeders at the River Center, staffing community events, giving presentations to membership, and assisting with data collection and/or graphic design. If you share our concern for birds and the places they need to thrive, we would be thrilled to have your help. To volunteer just send an email to admin@fresnoaudubon.org with your contact information and your areas of interest and/or expertise. Thanks for your interest in Fresno Audubon Society.

Citizen Science

Fresno Audubon Society is involved with several Citizen Science projects, including the Christmas Bird Count, San Joaquin River native plant restoration bird surveys and the Pacific Flyway Shorebird Survey. More information on these projects can be found here: https://fresnoaudubon.org/citizen-science/

Community Outreach

Fresno Audubon attends events in the local community to educate and inform the public on the importance of birds and the environments they need to thrive. We need volunteers to staff these events for a few hours at a time.

Bird walks and teaching

The primary activity of Fresno Audubon is holding bird walks throughout the Fresno/Madera area. We are always looking for people to lead or co-lead these walks. We also teach beginning birding and hold beginner birds walks at a variety of locations, including the River Center, the Sierra Foothill Conservancy and the BLM’s San Joaquin River Gorge. These classes are a fun way to share your enthusiasm for birds with interested people.
