Urban Bird Foundation Burrowing Owl Project Photos

If you are looking to help us protect burrowing owls, birds, and other wildlife in our communities, then you are in the right place. A growing, critical part of Urban Bird is the volunteers that make it possible for us to implement our on-the-ground conservation programs.

Current Volunteer Opportunities


By joining our Burrow Watch Program, you will have a direct role in the protection of burrowing owls in and adjacent to urban and suburban communities…your community! As a volunteer you may:

  • Help monitor burrowing owls and their wintering and breeding habitat
  • Help staff identify and watchdog development projects on lands with burrowing owls – documenting owls, burrows, and activities through photos and videos
  • Scout new locations and perform initial site surveys – including verification of potential dangers that must be addressed
  • Share your passion and volunteer activities with your social network
  • And more!

No experience is necessary and training will be provided. We are currently recruiting for the following locations:


  • San Francisco Bay Area
  • Greater Sacramento Area

Additional Locations
We will be recruiting for additional states and locations soon. If you are interested in participating in our Burrow Watch Program, please let us know so we can contact you when recruitment in your region begins.
