Bucks County Audubon Society at Honey Hollow has many unique and varied volunteer opportunities! People with a range of skills and interests are needed to support our educational programs, activities, and conservation efforts. The volunteer assignments are so varied that there’s a time, place and function for everyone who respects nature and is interested in sharing their time.
There’s always work to be done at Honey Hollow, and your help is essential! As a non-profit organization, we count on volunteers like you that are devoted to the purpose of environmental education in order to meet many of our basic institutional needs.
Volunteer opportunities include:
Trail Maintenance: Work with us to enhance our 110 acre property throughout the year. We need help trimming and improving trails, controlling invasive species, landscaping, and working in our vegetable garden. If you have special skills such as carpentry or gardening, or you just like to work outside, come lend us a hand!
Facilities Maintenance: If you have carpentry, electrical, plumbing or other skills, we could use your help with the upkeep and repairs to our environmental education center.
Special Events: It takes a lot of work to hold our special events throughout the year, and we need you to join our team! Events include Raptor Run 5K, Earth Day Festival, Haunted Trails, and The Art of the Barn Tour & Art Show.
Committees: Our volunteer committees work in conjunction with the Board of Directors to provide essential leadership and help guide the organization. Join a committee to lend your support! If you are interested in joining, email Executive Director, Stacy Carr-Poole at [email protected] . Committees include:
- Property – Maintain our open space, historic buildings, and facilities
