Like Raptors? Audubon needs you


This eagle owl was photographed at Audubon’s 2012 Raptor Weekend.
Get involved, have fun, and make a difference with the Audubon Society of Rhode Island. Volunteers are needed for Raptor Weekend 2013, September 7 and 8, at the Environmental Education Center in Bristol.

A wide variety of majestic birds of prey, including owls, hawks, and falcons, will be showcased by wildlife rehabilitators and raptor experts in live flight presentations, educational programs and activities for families and bird lovers of all ages. Audubon needs volunteers to help with games and activities, admissions, directing parking, crafts, face painting, the raffle table, and more.

Morning and afternoon shifts are available on both days. Volunteers will be paired with at least one other volunteer and given instructions; and may sign up for a single shift or work all four. Lunch will be provided to all volunteers who sign up for a full day. This is a great for teens who are looking for school service hours, and must be 16 years old to volunteer independently. Teens aged 13 to 15 years may volunteer with a parent or guardian.
