Volunteer for Indiana Audubon!
Since 1898, Indiana Audubon members have been sharing their passion for birding and Indiana’s unique natural heritage. Some individuals serve on the board of directors or committees, others help out when they can, where they can. Your support is much more than the cost of membership. IAS members help lead field trips, serve as newsletter editors, mentor youth birders, share their artisan work, and so much more!
Indiana Audubon wants your help today as we continue to strive towards our 2016-2020 Strategic Plan of protecting our great birds, and inspiring a new generation of conservationists. Please consider helping in any of the roles below, and contact us if you have new ideas on ways you can help Indiana Audubon. We believe that every person can make a positive impact in protecting the natural resources of Indiana!
