Calling all birders: Desert Rivers Audubon is seeking volunteers to weed and water the Hummingbird Habitat at Chandler’s Desert Breeze Park during the group’s Second Saturdays events, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., September through May, and 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., June through August. It’s a great way to learn more about native bird life. And who doesn’t love those little hummingbirds?
Volunteers must be at least 10 years old and should commit to helping out two hours a month. Gardening skills are beneficial.
Desert Rivers Audubon educates East Valley communities — Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, Apache Junction, San Tan Valley, and parts of Pinal County — in how to preserve birds, wildlife and habitats.
