The Division of Environmental Education is currently hiring incredible volunteers to help with winter programming for area schools. The schedule is FULL of super excited kids and teachers ready for a year of hands-on, interactive, experiential education opportunities.

We are seeking volunteers to help in the following areas:

  • Biscayne Explorer (day program)
  • Fish ON! (boat based program)
  • In-Classroom Programs.

Programs are scheduled every day of the week except Wednesdays so there are a lot of opportunities to match this opportunity to your schedule. Programs are scheduled from 9-2p and take place at the Dante Fascell Visitor Center.

Local volunteers only as we do not offer housing.

A background investigation is required

About Biscayne National Park

Location:

9700 SW 328th Street, Homestead, FL 33033, US

Mission Statement

Biscayne National Park provides for a unique volunteer experience. We aim to give individuals the opportunity to make a difference in a place of great natural beauty. In an attempt to balance use and preservation, Biscayne is committed to the long term preservation of its 172,971 acres, most of which is under water. Aquatic and marine-based, service oriented projects help to further the protection and preservation of this South Florida treasure.

Description

Within sight of downtown Miami, yet worlds away, Biscayne protects a rare combination of aquamarine waters, emerald islands, and fish-bejeweled coral reefs. Here too is evidence of 10,000 years of human history, from pirates and shipwrecks to pineapple farmers and presidents.
