Volunteer Naturalist Teaching
A Bluff Lake Volunteer Naturalist leads a group of elementary-school students along Sand Creek.

Volunteer Environmental Educators lead groups of students (K-6th grade) at our nature center through hands-on exploration in topics including wetland ecology, habitat diversity, urban wildlife, food chains, and life cycles. Bluff Lake Nature Center is located in the Stapleton neighborhood of northeast Denver.

Through their enthusiasm and guidance, volunteer educators make it possible for each student to experience a meaningful discovery at Bluff Lake. Volunteers are asked to work at least one morning per week 9am-12:30pm (Tues-Fri) for our field trip programs.

No experience is necessary, although teaching and/or outdoor experience preferred. Applicants who can speak both Spanish and English are especially encouraged. We will offer on-the-job training.

Please contact Education Manager Heidi Pfeiffer at heidi@blufflake.org to learn more. Learn more at http://www.blufflake.org/volunteer/youth-education

Mission Statement

To foster lifelong learning and environmental stewardship at Bluff Lake, a unique urban wildlife refuge.


Bluff Lake Natural Center is a 123-acre wildlife refuge, managed as a non-profit, located in northeast Denver. This local gem, is the largest privately owned open space in the metro area. We depend on volunteers to maintain our site and provide programs. Each year more than 30,000 people come to visit our three miles of trails, experience science and nature through our school-based field trips, summer camps and family programs, to encounter birds (over 150 species logged!), or to escape a bustling urban area.


We'll work with your schedule.
