Want to make a difference?

Looking for an opportunity to make a difference for both the environment and your community?  Join Audubon Arizona to install native plant gardens, build artificial burrows for burrowing owls and improve wildlife habitat at the Nina Mason Pulliam Rio Salado Audubon Center in the heart of South Phoenix!

Conservation Workdays are generally 8 a.m.12 p.m., depending on the project.  Please be prepared to work outdoors in the desert environment. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing, closed toe shoes, and bring lots of water, a hat and sunscreen!

No experience is necessary, tools will be provided, and all ages are welcome!
