Seeking volunteers to lead nature walks for school children, to teach them about the natural history and native habitats of our local nature spaces. No experience is necessary, just a love of the outdoors and a willingness to work with children. Naturalist training will be provided. Tours and training are conducted at one of the following program sites.
The program is designed to teach young schoolchildren about the last remaining major coastal salt marsh in L.A. County. Field trips for students take place Tuesdays and Thursday mornings, usually 3-5th graders. Docents lead the children on interpretive nature walks that last approximately two to three hours. You should be willing and able to work with a group of approximately 12-15 children, accompanied by a teacher or parent. Training and program occurs outdoors and involves a lot of walking - always come prepared with water, hat, sunscreen and wear walking shoes. Volunteer commitment: 2 tours per month.
