This is a no pressure, lend a helping hand if and when you can opportunity. Just provide us your name, interests and phone number and when the need arises we’ll give you a call and check if you are available to help.
Why volunteer? There are lots of good reasons. Here are a few:
- Meet new people and make new friends
- Give back to your community
- Try something new
- Share your skills
- HAVE FUN!
Whatever your interests or skills, EDA has a place for you. All you have to do is like people and enjoy nature. To make our programs successful, we need membership involvement in all of our activities. Donating even an hour or two of your time can help a lot. There are all sorts of fun ways to get involved. EDA will give you the training you need.
What would you like to do? Maybe it’s to co-lead a field trip to the wetlands or the wonderful Nature Center, spend a few hours at an information table, help with office duties (make copies, computer help, etc.) or help set up chairs and tables at our 3rd Thursday general meetings, bring refreshments to the general meeting (chapter reimburses for this), help out the newsletter labeling crew (weekday), or help with our 50th anniversary celebration. Or do you have a special business skill or other talent you would like to share? We are open to your suggestions!
We’re also looking to form a bird walk/field trip leader pool, for those who would like to get outside and help others discover the world of birds.
If you would like to join a committee we have a variety to choose from: conservation, tabling, fundraising, park cleanups, hospitality, membership and more.
