Thank you for Volunteering!
Let us know more about your interest in volunteering with Lahontan Audubon Society. Throughout the year we have a number of events and activities that require volunteer assistance to continue.
We are also open to your ideas for reaching new members and involving existing members.
Thank you for your participation!
Field Trips - Be a field trip leader for LAS to a local birding spot of your choice. Most trips are half-day trips in our area, but all-day field trips and even two-day field trips are possible. OR volunteer to assist a field trip leader on one or more field trips to register participants, coordinate the group, and assist with questions from trip participants. OR help our Field Trip Chair to coordinate with field trip leaders to get field trip reports to post on our website.
Education – Volunteers are the ones who make LAS work, especially our School Visits and the Washoe Lake Field Trips. We’ve had a dedicated, energetic, enthusiastic group of people every year to help with our educational outreach. But we can always use more! If you would like to get involved we would love to have you. You don’t have to be an expert. We can train you on the spot. And you’ll probably have as much, if not more, fun than the kids. At the very least, you will certainly have a feeling of satisfaction as you help kids (and adults) learn about the birds and other wildlife of this area, and the need for protecting and preserving our fragile habitats. Join us and you, too, can make a real difference in a child’s life.
Fundraising/Fall Fund Drive - Help coordinate the LAS Fall Fund Drive and assist with mailing the Fund Drive solicitation, collating and tracking donations, and sending out thank you notes. We are always looking for volunteers with innovative ideas for other fundraising events or campaigns throughout the year.
Virtual Programs & Meetings- We hold our monthly membership meeting every fourth Tuesday of the month and occasionally host other program meetings in between. We are always looking for presenters or co-presenters for virtual meetings and tech-savvy people to assist presenters with hosting Zoom meetings.
Volunteer Coordinator - We need someone with great organizations skills to compile information on volunteers and connect them to the appropriate Committee Chair or Board member. The Volunteer Coordinator would maintain a database of volunteers, their contact information, and volunteer interests and/or skills.
Communications Committee - The LAS Communications Chair oversees the LAS email notification list, the LAS website and Facebook page, and publicity for LAS and for LAS special events.
