VOLUNTEER | SPONSOR | DONATE
We so appreciate the commitment of community members, businesses and area organizations to support our mission of public awareness and involvement in nature through education, conservation and eco-tourism.
Matagorda County Birding Nature Center operates on revenues consisting of entrance fees, event fees, memberships, fundraisers, grants and donations. The 501(c)(3) is managed predominantly with volunteers and a working board of directors.
Please consider partnering with us through an annual membership.
KIOSK ATTENDANTS The Kiosk is manned 100% by volunteers. We have several time slots available for those preferring indoor, air conditioned positions.
SPEAKERS FOR NATURE SEMINARS If you have an area of expertise in a particular Nature Field , whether self-taught or PhD and you are willing to share your time- it can be once a year, twice a year or even monthly, we need you!
