Volunteering with the National Aviary
National Aviary Volunteers are outgoing and dynamic individuals who play an important role in our mission to inspire respect for nature through an appreciation of birds. Volunteers help provide our visitors with an outstanding experience by sharing their passion for conservation while enjoying the National Aviary’s lush habitats and beautiful, diverse birds.
The National Aviary is accepting volunteer applications for select positions which provide opportunities for volunteers to responsibly engage with Aviary visitors in free-flight habitats while following safety guidelines set forth by the CDC.

2020 Volunteer of the Year
We couldn’t choose just one person to receive the 2020 Volunteer of the Year Award, so we are honoring them all. We are so thankful to all of our volunteers for all that they have done to support the National Aviary.
The National Aviary’s amazing team of volunteers play an integral role in supporting our mission to inspire respect for nature through an appreciation of birds. In 2020, their support was more important than ever. The dedication of our volunteers, who collectively volunteered 9,242 hours last year, helped us to continue to deliver world-class care to our flock, provide amazing experiences for our visitors, and adapt to the changes and challenges brought on by the pandemic.
Thank you, National Aviary Volunteers!
