About the San Diego River Park Foundation: Founded in 2001, we are a nonprofit, environmental organization dedicated to the restoration of the San Diego River and creation of the San Diego River Park System. More info at www.sandiegoriver.org .
Description of Activities: The Outdoor Education Volunteer will be dedicated to engaging youth within the San Diego River watershed, with the purpose of teaching kids the importance and value of our local ecosystem through hands-on, citizen science projects. This person will help to set up for events and stay at the meet-up location to watch the tables, tent, and others' belongings. They will also help break down the event at the end. If you would like to be more hands-on, you can also help the children participate in learning activities. These include plant, animal and insect identification, field studies and guided hikes! You are not expected to know how to do these things beforehand. Must be 18 years or older.
Time Commitment: Field trips meet on the following weekday mornings: Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, 8:30am - 12pm. Field trips are usually held in Ocean Beach, Mission Valley Preserve, or Mission Trails Regional Park.
If you would love to teach the next generation about nature, such as the San Diego River's ecosystem, and get them excited about citizen science, you would love this opportunity!
