Volunteer Opportunities

We rely on volunteers to achieve our goals. In fact, without volunteers, we would not exist!

Founded by volunteers in 1969, the mission of Houston Audubon is to advance the conservation of birds and positively impact their supporting environments.

From supporting our staff at our headquarters, to maintaining trails on our Bird Sanctuaries, to increasing appreciation and understanding of birds throughout Houston, and more, volunteers are the lifeblood of Houston Audubon!

Read below to learn more about our current volunteers needs and how you can get involved in helping protect bird habitat in your community.

Long-term and skills-based volunteer roles

Volunteering as a Group

Houston Audubon welcomes your group's participation at our sanctuaries! Schools, churches, scout troops, corporations, and community agencies are key partners in achieving our mission of conservation and habitat protection. If you are interested in your group working with us, please complete a group volunteer request form. Volunteer Manager Lauren Miheli will contact you after your request is received. Generally, two months lead time and funding support are needed to develop a project. Note: Small groups and families are also welcome to join us for our regularly scheduled work parties.

Corporate groups should contact Julie Gold at, 281-888-1768

Birding on the Fly Team 

Meet the public where they are to share your love of birding and conservation with new communities around Houston. Volunteers will work with staff to bring high powered birding scopes and binoculars to community events and neighborhood parks to expose people to the diversity of birds in our own backyards. Events start in April after a group training session.

Beach Nesting Monitors and Stewards 

Protect shorebirds at Bolivar Flats and Anahuac NR by interacting with the ATV and Jeep communities, reminding them that the beach is valuable nesting habitat and educating them about the mission of Houston Audubon.
