We have several volunteer opportunities. See the descriptions below. 

Wetland Restoration

GSLA is working cooperatively with U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission to restore approximately 120 acres of land along the Jordan River.  The primary purpose of this project is to provide food, nesting and shelter for breeding birds, as well as high quality habitat for migrating birds and resident wildlife.  We need volunteers to help us plant trees, monitor and maintain irrigation systems, and remove noxious weeds and exotic vegetation. To volunteer contact Karri Smith at karriasmith@msn.com or (801) 833-9029


We are seeking individuals who are interested in following local environmental issues that impact birds, wildlife and habitat.  Interested individuals will assist the Conservation Chair in monitoring meetings, hearings, rulings and other developments regarding issues identified by the Conservation Committee.  If you are interested in assisting with this important work, contact our Conservation Chair, Janice Gardner at conservation@greatsaltlakeaudubon.org


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 our newsletter editor, Nancy Sakahara at (801) 487-4025 or nsakahara@earthlink.net


We are seeking an individual to take charge of all publicity for Great Salt Lake Audubon.  Duties would entail promoting the public presence of GSLA and its events through radio, television, internet, print media, flyers Facebook and mailings.  The prospective person would interact and coordinate closely with the Program Chair, President and other members of the Board.  If you are interested in this position, contact president@greatsaltlakeaudubon.org
