Finding Urban Nature (FUN)
Do you know how spiders navigate their own webs without getting stuck, or why tree leaves are different shapes? Explore these and other fun science topics with Seattle Audubon's FUN program.

The FUN program introduces 3rd grade students to the nature in their schoolyard habitat and examines how each organism depends on others to survive. Volunteers lead small groups of  four to seven students through a series of outdoor investigations, which teach kids to use their senses and scientific practices to discover the importance of urban biodiversity firsthand.

Four lessons in the fall and four more in the spring give students the opportunity to build knowledge and observe seasonal changes in their schoolyard habitats.
Volunteer trainings will be held in early October, and in-school lessons will be held in October-November.

Contact FUNvolunteer@seattleaudubon.org to receive an application.

Restoration Work Parties with Trees for Seattle
Seattle Audubon is partnering with Trees for Seattle to help keep Seattle's urban forests healthy. Trees for Seattle manages the work parties, but you can get credit for volunteering for Seattle Audubon by reporting your work hours to Seattle Audubon. Tools and gloves are provided. Come prepared with weather-appropriate and protective clothes, closed-toe shoes, and a personal water bottle. You can also learn more about the trees in your neighborhood by attending a walk led by a Tree Ambassador; check the Trees for Seattle website for the current walk schedule.
