Display Table Description: Western Cuyahoga Audubon would like your assistance with staffing an interactive display table at the Backyard Biodiversity Bash at West Creek Reservation. As our organization has done in the past, two volunteers are needed to work our display table with a fun, bird matching game and sharing information about Western Cuyahoga Audubon. Those staffing the table should be able to talk and work with visitors of all ages as the event is family friendly. It is helpful to know a little about common birds in parks and neighborhoods since visitors may ask questions. A whiteboard with a checklist of birds sighted during the event is managed at our table as well.
Bird Walk Leader Description: In addition, two or three bird walk leaders are needed to walk the trails, possibly take small groups to see some birds and share knowledge about the birds sighted.
