Volunteer Environmental Youth Educators play a key role in fulfilling Bluff Lake’s mission to "foster environmental education and stewardship at Bluff Lake" as leaders in our school science programs. Volunteer Environmental Youth Educators make science fun and meaningful for kids at our nature center and outdoor classroom!
Volunteers introduce groups of schoolchildren to the natural world through hands-on exploration in topics including wetland ecology, habitat diversity, urban wildlife, food chains, and life cycles. Students range in age from ECE-6th grade, and primarily attend Denver and Aurora Public Schools. Through their enthusiasm and guidance, volunteer educators make it possible for each student to experience a meaningful discovery at Bluff Lake.
Science programs are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings (9am-12:30pm) throughout the school year. (Volunteers are asked to work at least one morning per week.)
Volunteers use the program curricula and present it according to established guidelines. Bluff Lake naturalists provide training on the job and during several education workshops offered throughout the year. No experience is necessary.
