NATURE EDUCATION INTERNSHIPS

Work Outdoors and Receive Credit!

The Green Mountain Audubon Center invites students and recent graduates to help shape a healthy environment and vibrant future for birds – and all of us who share the planet with them.

Education interns will learn from experts in the field of conservation education while gaining exposure to a variety of education techniques both inside and outside of the classroom. 

Interns will gain experience and/or knowledge in:

  • Local natural history, teaching and public speaking expertise, program planning experience, and research skills;
  • Leading and co-leading small groups of students through seasonal programs;
  • Developing lesson plans and curricula for an outdoor setting;
  • Connecting kids with nature through the arts of questioning, storytelling, and role-modeling interest and empathy towards all living things.
