During this National Volunteer Week (April 7 – 13), Maine Audubon recognizes the friends who support us with thousands of hours of volunteer time throughout the year. Volunteers are the backbone of many nonprofit organizations, including Maine Audubon, and we thank everyone for taking the extra time to make a difference in their community. We could not do it without you!
Doing good comes in many forms at Maine Audubon – volunteers are at the beach protecting shorebirds, answering the phone, counting loons, writing testimony and contacting legislators, supporting events, greeting guests, helping animals cross roads safely, stuffing envelopes, maintaining trails, pulling invasives and planting native plants, being board members, and so much more. From individuals who come every week to local companies who bring a large crew for one day, every hour of work helps move us forward. Every day Maine Audubon is inspired by the support we receive from the selfless people who are willing to take the time to promote our mission of conserving Maine’s wildlife and habitat. Everyone has the power to affect change to make Maine a better place to live and we are so grateful for your help.
If you are interested in volunteering, please go to maineaudubon.org/volunteer to sign up. We have several events coming up this spring that need the guiding hands of more volunteers. Events like Maine Spring LIVE on April 27 will require about 30 volunteers and our Native Plants Sale on June 15 also needs lots of helping hands. In addition, we are looking for a couple of people to cover our reception desk one morning or afternoon per week at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth. If you want to turn your free time into something more meaningful, contact us. We want to help you turn your time and passion into an opportunity to make meaningful change.
