Join our friendly and passionate team of volunteer Teacher Naturalists and lead or assist with school field trips at the Greenwich Audubon Center! Each spring and fall we lead guided hikes and nature programs for school groups from all over CT and NY with the goal of connecting children to nature. We aim to instill a sense of appreciate for nature in children and inspire them to help protect the natural world.
No prior experience is required or expected! We provide training sessions for volunteers in late-March/early-April and all volunteers will be able to shadow experienced volunteers and staff for as long as they would like prior to leading or assisting with school groups.
