People-oriented volunteers are needed to help spread the word about the Audubon At Home Wildlife Sanctuary Program at community and regional events. We schedule the dates, provide all the materials, and brief you on our message—you supply the enthusiasm!
Hello spring and summer gardening! As you buy, remember that native plants supply critical nutrition for birds and other wildlife. A list of local native plant sales can be found here. And please, no invasives! Besides from being nutritionally deficient themselves, invasive plants smother native plants, creating environmental food deserts. A list of invasive plant species to avoid can be found here.
The first edition of the Audubon at Home Newsletter was emailed to AAH clients and volunteer ambassadors on November 30th. It is aimed at those interested in gardening that is designed to make a difference for wildlife by creating habitat one property at a time.
Audubon at Home seeks a volunteer driver to pick up supplies from the ASNV office at National Wildlife Federation in Reston, to deliver them to a designated ambassador for tabling events in Fairfax or Arlington County, and to pick up unused supplies afterwards for return to ASNV in Reston.
