“Hands-on” volunteer opportunities include facilities maintenance, trail maintenance, helping at events, staffing the PVAS booth at fairs and festivals, leading or assisting with educational programs (adult or youth), leading field trips and bird walks, speaking at a monthly meeting, or participating in citizen scientist activities such as bird, insect, reptile and amphibian counts. If you have a particular area of interest or certain skill/expertise, chances are we can provide you with an outlet.
Youth Programs: During the Spring and Fall, we have many school groups visiting Yankauer Nature Preserve. We can always use help when we are working with these group. Contact Ellen Murphy at 304-676-8739 to find out more about these programs.
Committees: PVAS is always looking for enthusiastic and creative folks to serve on committees to help run day-to-day operations as well as help with “big picture” planning and organizing. Committees include: fundraising, events, education (adult and/or youth), public relations, land management, conservation, finance, birding, master naturalists, nature photographer’s group, and others.
