Volunteer Events

Special Notice: NYC Audubon prides itself on connecting people to nature and conservation through engaging programming that brings together individuals united by a passion for wildlife and the outdoors. Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are approaching our mission to connect and unite with one another through an adjusted lens. All in-person programming remains suspended in accordance with the NY State PAUSE order, and for the safety of our participants, guides, and staff. We are following state and federal government guidance, are in touch with city agencies, and continue to monitor the situation closely. We look forward to seeing our members and friends, and birding and working together once more, when it is again safe to do so. Read more about modified events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ready to roll up your sleeves and help improve or clean up sites important for birds? Join NYC Audubon for a morning or afternoon and lend a hand as we plant native trees and shrubs, clear out invasive plants, or clean up our beaches for horseshoe crabs and shorebirds. We’ll provide the tools and training, you provide the muscle! No training required and all ages are welcome. (Children must be supervised by an adult.)
