Would you like to take a more active role in protecting water resources and our environment? As a volunteer, you can take a hands-on approach to improving recreational opportunities in your neighborhood or in your favorite areas.
Throughout our 16-county region, Outreach and Intergovernmental Representatives work with local communities, businesses and governments. Look for the regional contact closest to you, and contact them to see if they can recommend volunteer opportunities in your area.

Known as the crown jewel of Audubon sanctuaries, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is a spectacular and pristine mix of native plants and animals. Ancient 600-year-old cypress trees tower into the sky, shading the shallow swamp waters. Volunteers can be involved with protecting the swamp in many different areas of sanctuary operations. Working closely with Audubon employees, volunteers contribute countless hours and services. You, too, can be part of this family.
