Do you have an interest in the natural world? Would you like to learn more about it and share your enthusiasm with children? If so, you have an exciting opportunity to join a group of like-minded people who make a difference in our community. Become an Environmental Educator at Sheldrake Environmental Center and learn to connect children with nature.
Our training includes:
Fall workshops in nature studies and teaching techniques to be held on Thursdays starting 10/6.
Observations with our experienced naturalists.
Ongoing enrichment classes.
Commitment upon completion of the training course:
Graduates will assist, co-teach and eventually lead local elementary school classes and outdoor nature programs in the spring.
Trained teachers are asked to volunteer two mornings a week during the spring and fall.
Benefits include contributing an important service to your community, continuing your education through ongoing enrichment classes, and being part of a group of people who share your environmental values and goals.
These classes are free, with a modest fee for materials.
