Education volunteers assist with elementary field trips at Columbia Springs. Each year, we see over 6,000 youth during our field trip programs that cover ecology, macroinvertebrates, water quality, and more. For many children, this is one of their first outdoor learning experiences and it is important to have many chaperones around to facilitate a unique and wonderful experience. Being an Education Volunteer is a great way to gain educational experience and help support local youth. This program is perfect for retired educators and students seeking experience in an education center.
