Volunteering Opportunities

Wetland Restoration

GSLA holds a 5-acre conservation easement and we are working to replace non-native vegetation with native wetland species. Volunteers are needed to help remove Russian olive and/or to plant native seedlings. Contact Nathan Darnall (801.755.4480).

Highway Cleanup Project

We are always looking for ways to generate positive publicity for GSLA. In this case, rather than use a billboard, we plan to clean up a stretch of highway. Not only will this benefit the environment, but GSLA will receive recognition along a corridor where there is lots of traffic. If you would like to volunteer, please call our office (801.521-2939) or contact Sylvia Gray.

Restoration

GSLA is working cooperatively with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, TreeUtah, IHI Environmental, and the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission to restore approximately 120 acres of land along the Jordan River for migratory birds. We need volunteers to help us plant trees, to monitor and maintain irrigation systems, and to map noxious weeds. To volunteer, please contact Keith at (801) 467-6497 or jandkjohnson@juno.com

Programs

Great Salt Lake Audubon is looking for volunteers to help set up the meeting rooms for our general membership meetings.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of January, February, March, April, May, September, October, and November. If you would like to help, please contact Rhonda at (801) 232-9616 or l.devereaux@comcast.net.

Newsletter

Six times a year, GSLA publishes an award winning newsletter, The Pelican. We need volunteers to place mailing labels on the newsletters for distribution through the Post Office.
For more information, please contact June at (801) 576-0103.

Historian

We're looking for an individual to clip and compile newspaper and news articles that mention Audubon. This does not require reading the paper every day, as both Salt Lake papers have online search engines. Contact: 801-521-2939

Volunteers wanted for Farmington Bay Nature Center

Could you donate a few hours each month to help children and wildlife in a beautiful outdoor setting on the shores of the Great Salt Lake? If so, the Farmington Bay Naturalist Program needs your help. No experience is necessary, and training will be provided on site prior to the upcoming 2005-2006 school year.

The Great Salt Lake Learning Center at Farmington Bay offers hands-on wetlands education field trips to school groups of all ages, and currently serves about 3,000 children annually. Requests for field trips greatly exceed the current volunteer staff capacity, so the Learning Center is recruiting new Naturalists in order to better serve the needs of local school districts.

The Learning Center is a community partnership involving the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, the Davis School District Foundation, and a non-profit parent organization (the Great Salt Lake Interpretive Trust). The Learning Center is funded entirely from corporate and foundation donations and staffed primarily by Volunteer Naturalists.

For more information about the program, or to sign up as a volunteer, please contact
Debbie Goodman, 801-397-2142 or
Karen Caldwell, 801-451-2740.
