Our Volunteers

More than 30 individuals have generously volunteered their time and talent to help lead our field trips.  Volunteers are selected for their ability to connect with young birders and their passion for sharing the adventure of birding.  All volunteers undergo a State of Iowa criminal record background check and receive orientation on our field trip techniques.  THANK YOU!
