Throughout Illinois, nonprofits like Illinois Audubon Society greatly rely on the help and expertise of volunteers. Inside and out – trail maintenance, restoration, species surveys, coordinating educational programs and field trips and even administrative tasks. Whatever your interest and skill, we have a need for your assistance and energy.

No experience necessary. Just a willingness to help us further our mission. We provide training, tools and the means to get things done. Enjoy the camaraderie, pick up some exercise and get outside!


Here is just a sample of some of the activities our volunteers participate in:

  • Trail maintenance
  • Seed collecting and dispersal
  • Prescribed burns
  • Combating invasives
  • Garbage pickup
