The 2017 Hummingbird Migration & Nature Celebration (September 8th, 9th & 10th) is quickly approaching and this year’s event is shaping up to be one of our most unique yet! Audubon’s largest outdoor festival would not be possible without the more than 150 volunteers that make this event and annual fundraiser a continuing success. Volunteering at the Celebration is one of the best ways to experience this iconic event, particularly for individuals how have attended in the past. No matter your experience, occupation or expertise, everyone is welcome to volunteer and help support Strawberry Plains Hummingbird Celebration. We’re proud that this annual event grows in scope every year and could not take place without the generous support of our many volunteers and their willingness to give their time.
Signing up to volunteer is now easier than ever. Below are new forms that can be filled out and submitted via email. Simply open the appropriate Volunteer Form (Adult or Child) using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Fill out the form in its entirety including the liability waiver on the second page (fields highlighted in red are required), save the document to your computer and email it as an attachment to SPACvolunteers@audubon.org. We will send a return message verifying receipt. (If the individual is under 18, select the Child form and have a legal guardian sign off on it.)
If you prefer paper copies, you can also print the forms and submit them via fax or US mail at 662-252-8844 (fax) or Strawberry Plains Audubon Center, Attn: HB Volunteers, 285 Plains Rd., Holly Springs, MS 38635.
If you know of others that may be interested in volunteering and taking part in this exciting event, please forward this information to them or have them contact us at SPACvolunteers@audubon.org or 662-252-1155.
We are attempting to have all volunteers signed up with completed paperwork prior to the event and appreciate your support and effort in doing so. As in the past, you will receive meal ticket(s) and refreshments throughout your shifts and a complimentary t-shirt; we will have plenty of sizes and styles to choose from.
