  • Teach children outdoors, September through May, at the Shaw Nature Reserve in Gray Summit, Missouri. Shaw Nature Reserve school programs offer students the opportunity to experience and investigate the natural world under the guidance of skilled staff and volunteer Teacher Naturalists. Programs are designed to encourage inquiry, exploration and problem solving. Teacher Naturalists lead hands-on investigations that enable students to discover, gather information, ask questions, and begin to formulate their own answers. These remarkable volunteers have a wide variety of backgrounds and skills, but each has a strong commitment to sharing their knowledge and love of nature with children. Classes are hands-on with a focus on sensory awareness and ecological concepts. Other duties may include assisting with adult and family classes and special events.
