Volunteers are the backbone of East Cascades Audubon Society.
They are our board members, our project coordinators, our committee members, our field trip leaders, and our educators. They write our newsletters, keep track of our memberships, build and monitor nest boxes, and conduct bird surveys. They organize Birders’ Night, pull noxious weeds, and help restore favorite birding sites. They volunteer because they want to help protect and preserve the wild birds of Central Oregon. They volunteer because they enjoy sharing time with other folks who want to learn about birds. And the truth is, ECAS simply could not exist without our volunteers!
Volunteer hours earn ECAS an annual funding stipend from the National Audubon Society, and strengthen our application for grants. (So, volunteers, please track those hours and mileage for any effort you undertake. We report volunteer hours to the National Audubon Society annually.)
