Kids

One of Audubon’s main missions is to open the eyes of young children to nature - often less privileged children who don’t have access to the outdoors for fun and exploration. If you love working with kids, come work side-by-side with nature educators in Audubon’s public school program, helping students with pond sampling, hikes, guided animal encounters, nature journaling, and in the exhibit hall.
This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in a career in science or environmental education to gain invaluable experience. We offer programs for pre-K through high school.

Volunteer shifts are available M-F 9a.m.- 1:30p.m. (minimum one shift per week); a background check is required.
