“Organizations grow with a diversity of volunteers and the abilities, skills and ideas brought by those volunteers. In planning and preparing for the 2018-2019 Western Cuyahoga year, we would like to have additional volunteers come forward and participate.”
VOLUNTEERISM AND WESTERN CUYAHOGA AUDUBON SOCIETY
By Nancy Howell, Board Member, Western Cuyahoga Audubon
How many of you have attended one of our evening programs at the Rocky River Nature Center and have been greeted by friendly folks at the auditorium door? How many of you have had a cup of coffee or tea and some delicious baked goods at the programs? How many of you have attended a WCAS field trip or a Second Saturday bird walk? And how many of you have seen a WCAS display or activity at past venues? If you have done any of these … and we can add more … are all accomplished by volunteers with Western Cuyahoga Audubon!
Whether it is fund-raising, friend-raising, educating, welcoming visitors, promoting bird-friendly coffee, supplying refreshments or leading walks, volunteers are crucial to our organization. Organizations grow with a diversity of volunteers and the abilities, skills and ideas brought by those volunteers. In planning and preparing for the 2018-2019 Western Cuyahoga year, we would like to have additional volunteers come forward and participate. As you read through the newsletter there is a section listing several volunteer opportunities in WCAS. Most of these opportunities require little time, perhaps once or twice a month, and little effort. As you review them think to yourself, “gee, I am good at …” or “I have some great ideas that I’d like to share”. Many of you are interested in nature, so writing an article for The Feathered Flyer newsletter or the WCAS blog would be wonderful.

The Feathered Flyer blog publishes human interest stories about birding and habitat conservation.
After watching, ‘My Painted Trillium Quest' by Tom Fishburn, Kim Langley, WCAS Member said, “Wonderful! It was a lift just knowing that such a site exists and is being protected!”
