Volunteer for one of the many on-going activities of PV/SB Audubon!
(Youth Environmental Service Program)
Chapter Representatives are needed to guide school groups in our Audubon YES! program. Representatives work
a few hours each month with school ecology clubs, service groups or individual students from a single school to
coordinate service projects, such as habitat cleanups or Earth Day displays. The Chapter provides the school
group or student with adequate support for their programs through volunteers from Rolling Hills Prep, Torrance
High School groups, and other schools. These are wonderful young people, bright and full of enthusiasm. You will
have a great time!
