Volunteer With Us!

St. Paul Audubon Society is a non-profit organization that runs on volunteer power.

Our members are active, involved people dedicated to the principle of taking action to make the world a better place for birds and other wildlife. Are you the kind of person who likes a hands-on approach, such as whacking invasive plant species, leading bird walks for new birders, helping put together symposiums on major environmental issues, serving on a board of directors, or helping get mailings and the newsletter out on time? Or would you prefer to research timely issues and inform St. Paul Audubon members about how they can take positive action? If your interest is on the policy side, you can help by working with our partner organizations to help influence decision-makers at the local, state and national level.

Whichever your preference, we need you. Here’s your chance to put your concern about what’s happening to the natural world into action. Members of the St. Paul Audubon Society are buckthorn busters, bird census takers and seminar organizers. We’re researchers and report-writers and we represent St. Paul Audubon on various task forces and coalitions.

Conservation Committee

We’re always on the lookout for new members for our committee because the more of us that work on conservation issues, the more we can get done—it’s that simple. The committee meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month. Contact co-chairs Susan Solterman or Val Cunningham for more information. You’ll be more than welcome at any of our meetings as you discover what a lively, committed group of Auduboners can accomplish.

Education Committee

Do you have a wealth of bird knowledge that’s just chirping to get out? Share your knowledge of birds with St. Paul students through our school program. Contact Steve Johnson to find out how you can help.

Board of Directors

Contribute to decisions that establish the direction and policies of the St. Paul Audubon Society (SPAS). Oversee chapter resource management and use of the SAPS name. Represent the interest of SPAS as a conservation leader in the community. Typical commitment: 4 hrs / month, 10 months (no board meetings July and August).
