About

Bluff Lake Nature Center- Volunteer Environmental Youth Educators

Volunteer Environmental Youth Educators play a key role in fulfilling Bluff Lake’s mission to " foster environmental education and stewardship at Bluff Lake, a unique urban wildlife refuge" as leaders in our youth science programs.

Volunteers introduce groups of schoolchildren to the natural world through hands-on exploration in topics including wetland ecology, habitat diversity, urban wildlife, food chains, and life cycles. Students range in age from ECE-5th grade, and primarily attend Denver and Aurora Public Schools. Volunteer Environmental Youth Educators make science fun and meaningful for kids! Through their enthusiasm and guidance, volunteer educators make it possible for each student to experience a meaningful discovery at Bluff Lake.

Field trips are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings (9am-12:30pm) throughout the school year.

Volunteers use the program curricula and present it according to established guidelines as well as receive training on the job and in several training workshops offered throughout the year. No experience is necessary.
