Events for Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Month

We in Utah understand the value of service and the impact it has on our communities. Utah consistently ranks number one in the country for volunteerism, but less than fifty percent of our citizens volunteer. April is National Volunteer Month, and we challenge each of you to find a way to volunteer in your community. To find volunteer opportunities, visit userve.utah.gov/volunteer-opportunities.

Urban Habitat Community Weed Pluck

Urban Habitat began in 2012 as a proactive task force to control invasive and noxious weeds. Join us! Help save our precious foothills from the encroaching noxious weeds, learn about the ecology, classification, and diversity of plants and wildlife in our ecosystem and meet great people.  Participation in events with Urban Habitat is voluntary for improving plant habitat in the urban-wildland interface in the foothills of Salt Lake Valley. For participation on the weed plucks we require gloves, closed-toed footwear, long pants, a University release form, and water. We also encourage participants to bring long-sleeved shirts, shade hats, sunscreen, and a snack.

Meeting destination for the group will be determined prior to each event as notified through the groups distribution email list the Urban Habitat Website and our Facebook Page.

Volunteer Orientation: Bird Docent

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International's education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and our various programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties. If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, please attend this orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HawkWatch International's Education and Community Outreach Director.
