St. Louis Audubon Fall Stewardship Projects

We had another fantastic year made possible by over 350 volunteers just like you contributing nearly 1,500 hours of service planting, cleaning and clearing! We’re better off because of your service and hope to see you again this fall for one of these projects! 

Volunteers are requested to register for all projects by providing their name, contact information and number attending to mitch@stlouisaudubon.org or (314) 599-7390.

All projects begin at 9 am, registration starts at 8:30. All are half-day. Gloves and other supplies/materials are provided. All ages welcome, except where noted, but those under 18 must have parental/adult supervision at all times.
