Volunteer Instructor:

Teach Pre-K through eighth grade students on weekdays throughout the school year. Five Rivers provides extensive preparation for this activity including basic training, lesson specific training, and co-teaching. Volunteers share a love of the outdoors and a desire to work with children on enjoyable, hands-on activities.

Spring and fall lessons are taught completely outdoors. Winter lessons begin with an indoor introduction before going afield. All lessons are two hours long, except lessons for pre-school, kindergarteners and first grade students. These lessons are 90 minutes in duration.

We accommodate a wide range of special needs, including students with mobility impairments and/or physical challenges. Program provides hands-on experiences and opportunities for students to be actively engaged in the discovery process. Students focus on such concepts as adaptations, life cycles, food chains and seasonal change, and make their own observations of plant and wildlife habitats.

Spring 2017 Training will be held on April 6th from 9-noon. Register soon.
