"Volunteering for AWE has been life changing for me. By volunteering with Burrowing Owls, Gopher Tortoises, Shorebirds, Conservation lots, educating the public and more, you too can make a difference for our next generation and our Earth’s future. AWE staff and team members go above and beyond to help wherever it is needed. Thank you AWE for all you do!
"As a member of AWE, I am truly amazed at all the wonderful talks and field trips they offer. I always find the topics interesting, and the hosts are always so knowledgeable. They are doing such great work in SW Florida I am proud to be an ongoing member."
"AWE has been a conservation rampart in SW Florida for decades. They have also experienced exciting growth in the last 7 years, both with staff additions and new projects. I am continually inspired and buoyed by their resolve and passion to protect wild Florida. They deserve our support."
