Volunteer Opportunities

NAAS needs a Field Trip Chair for Above the Rim (ATR). Field trips in the cooler climate near Flagstaff are a welcome respite from the heat Below the Rim (BTR).  NAAS is getting very creative with a variety of different types of field trips; for example, a Big Sit is a new type of field trip that lasts only one hour while birding in a set spot. The number of species can become quite competitive and these are very informative trips.  Beginner birders are discovering the joys of bird watching with fun and easy trips. Other field trips include BB&FF - Brown Bag and Fun Fact. Participants bird for over and hour and then have a snack as they look up answers to questions that occurred during the field trip portion. The Field Trip Chair coordinates field trips and field trip leaders.

This volunteer position doesn't take more than a few hours per month. Contact for more information.


Discover new birds and enjoy birding!

We are offering more field trips to a bigger variety of places than ever before. Our guides are avid local birders who know the habitats well. Each trip is tailored to increase your knowledge of birds and their environs.
