Nature Knowledge runs programs across the country, but we also think it’s important to support environmental education here at home in Colorado. This summer, we’re looking for volunteers to join us on Saturdays at the Lookout Mountain Nature Center as we volunteer with local Boy and Girl Scout troops.
Activities vary week to week depending on scout ages, including working on nature and camping merit badges, guiding hikes around the center and helping with presentations on ecosystem science.
Volunteers must pass a standard background check, but the only other requirements are enthusiasm for the Scouting mission, a love of nature and some experience with teaching outdoor skills.
Time Commitment: Starts on June 17th and runs through September 28th. This is a great opportunity for retired teachers that have a couple hours to spare each week!
