There are many ways that you can help California Waterfowl preserve, protect and enhance wetlands, waterfowl and outdoor experiences. Below are three key areas were your volunteer service will make a big difference.
You can help organize one of our many dinners across the state. Committee members solicit donations from the community; sell tickets; arrange for the facility, food, raffles, and auctions; promote CWA; and host evenings of fun that support CWA's conservation and heritage programs.

Volunteers who start or join established nest box projects have the opportunity to participate in a statewide effort to monitor and increase the wood duck population. After installing your nest boxes, they will need to be cleaned and maintained each year. Volunteers visit the nest boxes at least four times each spring and summer to collect valuable information about nesting activities.
Volunteers can obtain box-making plans from CWA and build boxes that can be donated to CWA or installed at nest box project sites. Check with local businesses for donations of wood or funds to purchase wood. Build boxes yourself, or with your scout troop, wood shop class, or other group efforts. For more information regarding the Wood Duck Program, please e-mail email@example.com.
Wood ducks and their nest boxes provide hands-on educational experiences for youngsters, volunteers, and landowners. CWA volunteers use displays, slide shows and other resources to teach about wood ducks and riparian wetlands.
