Rookery Field Trips

Sign up now to volunteer for educational field trips held at the Rookery Park. Learn more about them on our 2nd Grade Birdwatchers Program page.

Volunteer Saturdays

Volunteer Saturdays are scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of the month from 9-11 AM.  Whether you can volunteer just once or on a regular basis, please join us! 

The Venice Audubon "Green Team" dedicates time to garden, landscape, restore habitat, and keep the Rookery Park beautiful during Volunteer Saturdays. Come and stay as long as you feel comfortable.  If you have work gloves and a rake or other garden tools, please bring them. If not, we have some to share.   Other projects such as preparing materials for upcoming programs, cleaning  equipment, setting up Purple Martin colony housing, etc. also offer opportunities for volunteers.

Registration for Volunteer Saturdays is appreciated but not necessary.  Just come, help keep our park in top shape, and enjoy some fun and camaraderie with other members.  Projects may vary seasonally or by need.  We suggest you bring a water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray, a hat, and sturdy shoes. 

Contact Roy Musick at rmusick@veniceaudubon.org if you need more information.
