VAAS is entirely volunteer run, and donations cover the costs of operating our education and conservation programs, such as stewarding and restoring habitat at the Venice Rookery Park, maintaining the Pollinator Garden and Audubon Center, covering program and event expenses, purchasing software subscriptions to effectively communicate with members, and others.
