What Volunteer Opportunities Are Available with Forsyth Audubon?

We  have regular and recurring needs for volunteers to lead bird walks, assist with planting gardens as part of our Bird-friendly Communities program, working to conserve native habitat for birds in locations like Bethania and Historic Bethabara, and monitoring Brown-headed Nuthatch nest boxes. Check our sign-up hub for calls for volunteers.

For details on nest box monitoring, check our Brown-headed Nuthatches page.

Education Volunteers

Share your love of birds and nature with children

Forsyth Audubon needs caring, enthusiastic adults to present programs and lead bird walks for children’s groups.  We often get requests for kids programs around the time of the Great Backyard Bird Count, but we have requests at other times too.  In addition we are working to build partnerships with scout groups and 4-H clubs.

Share your love of birds with interested community groups 

Forsyth Audubon receives requests from Garden Clubs and other community groups to present information about birds.  This is a great opportunity to spread the word about our projects such as the Lights Out Program, the Brown-headed Nuthatch nestboxes, our Woodthrush project, and Bird Friendly backyards.  Groups also would just like help identifying the birds they are seeing at their backyard feeders.  We can provide slides and information to help with these community presentations.

For more information on either role, please contact Education Chair Wendy Hawkins, 336-723-2095.
