Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of approximately 450 local chapters, 120 campus chapters, 17 state and regional offices, 34 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country.

Mitchell Lake Audubon Center is a 1,200-acre wildlife refuge, located in south San Antonio, TX. The property is owned by the local water utility, San Antonio Water System (SAWS), and managed by the National Audubon Society. The historic Leeper House serves as its visitor center, with a small education pavilion on property. The site includes 7.5 miles of both walking and/or driving trails.
The center and the surrounding grounds are open year-round and attracts visitors from all over the world. Being a part of the Audubon team means making a difference for conservation. The Site Host position is a part-time, seasonal position assisting with essential end of day and after hours’ functions related to guest safety and facility support and security. Site Hosts support Mitchell Lake Audubon Center by ensuring all visitors have left the property at the close of business hours, and securing the gates and parking lot.
Site Hosts can expect to work an average of 5-10 hours per scheduled week.
Site Host positions are filled by RV campers and are required to live on-site in their personal RV on one of Audubon’s two RV pads. RV sites are equipped with water, sewer, and electricity hook-ups. Site Hosts share closing responsibilities with staff as needed.
