Volunteers: A Vital Part of Research

Volunteers are an essential part of any non-profit organization’s operations. Without the help of volun-teers, research at Tall Timbers would not be able to function to its greatest capacity. Volunteers provide essential assistance on many of our ongoing studies. Individuals or civic groups can volunteer. We also have developed volunteer internships where an intern may work on a specific project related to the student’s course of study.

Game Bird Research volunteer Cliff Preston, checks a snake trapping array for the snake mark-recapture study, which is part of the hardwood reduction project that is investigating the role of predation (in the new ground effect) by snakes, small and meso-mammals, and raptors (owls and hawks) on bobwhite quail and Bachman’s sparrows.
