Do you like working with kids and have a passion for nature and teaching? School groups from across Santa Fe visit our center and wildlife sanctuary located at the end of Upper Canyon Road and we engage them with a hands-on environmental education program. Students of all ages are introduced to our sanctuary trails to learn about animals, ecosystems, and the environment.
We are looking for people to help lead and guide groups of students through our 3-hour long field science programs, weekday mornings during the school year. It is so much fun to show kids a wild world which some have never seen!
Our primary audience for this opportunity is students in grades 2-4, and our programs cover topics such as bird ecology and bird-watching, plants, animal adaptations, nature's cycles, and ecosystem interactions. This is an excellent opportunity for naturalists, retired teachers, prospective classroom and outdoor educators amongst others.
Volunteers will receive training in natural history, environmental education, and classroom/group management from experts. Volunteers will learn from shadowing experienced Audubon Educators until they feel comfortable enough to teach on their own or with another Volunteer Educator.
Contact us today to learn more, and experience the magic of seeing children's eyes light up as they experience the natural world- some for the first time!
