Trumpeter Swan Society: Volunteers Needed!
We are focused on managing the Trumpeter Swan Society as a 'mean and lean machine' — putting your donation dollars to work in the most efficient manner possible. We have a small staff to cover a long list of priorities, while our list of "must-do" projects keeps growing. We could use some help!
VOLUNTEER POSITIONS AVAILABLE:
Trumpeter Swan Society: Research / Field Observation Volunteers
Depending on your geographic location or ability to travel we may have volunteer Trumpeter Swan field work projects that we need assistance with. Let us know your location, skills and time available and we will try to match you up with a researcher or research-coordinator.
Greater Yellowstone Region
Ruth Shea, Director-at-Large for the Rocky Mountain region is currently looking for a person or couple with an RV trailer, willing and wanting to spend the summer, or a portion of it observing Trumpeter Swans in Idaho and on the west side of the Greater Yellowstone Region. You will work directly with Ruth. Later summer observations of lakes used by swans during their sensitive molt process are of particular interest, but there are also nesting pairs to check on and general census of habitat and use or non-use. Volunteers need to be self-sufficient. If you are interested please email Ruth Shea at firstname.lastname@example.org
Trumpeter Swan Society: Office / Organizational Assistance (ongoing)
For those with time to contribute, we welcome volunteers on several levels. Let us know your skills and we can likely find a way to use them! Typical tasks that could help us greatly include:
- Internet Research
- Data entry
- Graphic & Publication Layout Design
- Expertise with QuickBooks for Nonprofits and accounting
We also always are on the lookout for potential future Board members, particularly people with a deep interest in swan restoration, who have skills in nonprofit administration and/or fundraising. If you are interested please email John Cornely at email@example.com
Peg Abbott, our Membership and Outreach Coordinator, is currently assembling data to develop educational handouts that detail Trumpeter Swan status for each state and province throughout the region. She could use help with Internet research. This will be assigned on a state or province basis, so we have a need for a number of people to help. Email Peg Abbott at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to assist with data gathering by doing Internet research. Applicants should be computer literate and comfortable with contacting resource persons by email or phone.
TTSS Website Links
We need help researching and requesting web LINKS and keeping an eye on LINKS we have listed on our Swan Links page of the TTSS website. As we strengthen bridges to a number of organizations we want to remain as the number one organization representing the Continent-wide Swan Network. As access to information takes on warp speed, we could use a few volunteers to track information on a regional basis. Email Peg Abbot at email@example.com if you would like to assist with data gathering by doing Internet research. Applicants should be computer literate and comfortable with contacting resource persons by email or phone.
If anyone is good with graphic design & layout for educational and other materials we welcome your involvement! Help with graphic design and layout allow us to present professional materials on a consistent basis. If you are interested please email Peg Abbot at firstname.lastname@example.org.
