Learn About Volunteer Opportunities at the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary

If you enjoy gardening or helping to educate others about nature, the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary has great volunteering opportunities available for you!

On April 19, learn how to lead children’s field trips along the Sanctuary’s Agriculture & Ecology Student Activity Trail from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. No previous experience is required. This tour helps schoolchildren understand the role that agriculture and ecology play in bringing them their morning bowl of Kellogg’s cereal. Registration is required.

Volunteers who enjoy gardening are invited to attend a training in the Sanctuary’s Native Pollinator Garden on April 26. No previous experience is required. Volunteers can choose to join a weekly group work session in the garden, or volunteer at other times that fit their schedule. The training will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Registration is required.

The Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 E. C Avenue in Augusta. To learn more, visit birdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu, email birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu, or call 269-671-2510.

The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is part of the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station. Celebrate with us our legacy of conservation as we mark 90 years since W.K. Kellogg donated the lands that now make up KBS to Michigan State University. Our commitment to research, education, and outreach stands on the foundation of W.K. Kellogg’s vision for cutting-edge science and learning. 

As MSU’s largest off-campus educational complex, we’ve put our land-grant values into practice as we’ve provided the public with examples of science’s crucial role in sustaining natural and managed communities for nearly a hundred years. As we look forward, our students and faculty are working to understand and solve real-world environmental problems for a better tomorrow. To learn more about KBS, visit us online at kbs.msu.edu.
