Environmental Education Volunteers
18 people are interested
A principle mission of Cape Fear River Watch is to conduct environmental education programs, primarily for school-age children. One of these programs is a three-part activity designed for fourth-grade students, which takes place outside the classroom, and which conforms to the NC 4 th Grade Science Curriculum: Ecosystems 4.L.1.
The activities consist of a walking eco-tour, a water-quality-assessment paddle-boat excursion, and a simulation game called "Raindrop Journey". All of these activities are conducted at Greenfield Lake over a period of about 3 hours to groups of 30 to 50 students.
Volunteers are needed primarily to accompany 2 or 3 students at a time on the paddle boat excursions, but also to assist the Education Coordinator in conducting the eco-tour and the "Raindrop Journey" game. The program is offered during the fall and spring on selected weekday mornings.
Other events for which volunteers are needed include "StriperFest Education Day" held March 30, 2019 and "LakeFest", held September 28, 2019.
