Tour de Bird Volunteer Orientation October 17, 7-9pm, Bass Pro Shops, Mesa, #TourdeBird

Join us at Bass Pro Shops, Community Room, 1133 N. Dobson Rd., Mesa, October 17, 2012, 7–9pm for our Tour de Bird Volunteer Orientation.  Tour de Bird is Desert Rivers Audubon’s wildlife habitat garden tour. It highlights both private backyard ecosystems designed to benefit birds and other wildlife, as well as public gardens demonstrating support of our bird habitat recognition program and migration corridors. Tour de Bird is made possible by a grant from Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Heritage Education Fund in partnership with the City of Chandler.

We’ll go over the tour in general & locations specifically. We’re meeting in the Community Room.

We need:

Garden Guides: Guide visitors through public & private gardens (orientation/documentation provided). If you love gardening, we’ll give you a description of the garden you choose to volunteer in Chandler, Gilbert or Scottsdale. The garden owner will be there to help you, too.

Ticket Takers: Take & sell garden tour tickets (instructions & support provided).

Older children may volunteer with their parents.

We have Service Learning credits for Maricopa County Community College Students. Check with the Mesa Community College Service Learning and Chandler-Gilbert Community College Service Learning Center for details.

Older children are welcome to volunteer with a parent, guardian or responsible adult.

National Honor Society and other High School Service Program volunteers also welcome.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator Anne Koch, atredray@yahoo.com or sign up here.

Thank you for your support–we can’t do it without you!
