Pelican Island Audubon Society
Our local wildlife, especially the birds and insects, evolved to depend on the native plants in Florida. Most nonnative plants introduced into Florida are unusable as a food source for our native wildlife. To remedy this situation, Pelican Island Audubon is taking part in the Trees for Life / Plants for Birds program to introduce native plant landscaping to our local communities. This includes the creation of nurseries to raise and sell, or give away for free, native plants and trees.
We can use your help! Volunteers are needed on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from 9AM to Noon when the nurseries are open to the public. Typical work includes filling plant orders and interacting with the public to answer questions and to promote the program. The level of physical work is low to moderate and consists mainly of moving small potted plants and watering. No experience is necessary. Our resident plant experts will help you get started.
LOCATION: Audubon House, 195 9th Street SE (Oslo Road), Vero Beach, FL
