Education Volunteer FIND has an exciting opportunity for education volunteers with a 51-year-old non-profit based out of Pisgah Forest, NC. FIND Outdoors promotes educational, recreational, and interpretive programs at five visitor centers and nine campgrounds in North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and Indiana. FIND Outdoors serves approximately 850,000 visitors each year with over 150 educational and interpretive programs. The education volunteer will work collaboratively with the education director, education team, site managers, and hosts to support the educational mission at FIND Outdoors. This role will focus on delivering informal education and interpretation programs to visitors and families throughout the year. Volunteers must have the requisite skills to function in this role and will be an ambassador to FIND Outdoors.
Providing educational opportunities at all of those sites is a large task. FIND Outdoors is searching for talented nature enthusiasts who would like to share their passion and expertise with the public. Are you a birder, wildflower enthusiast, educator, biologist, or general outdoor enthusiast? Do you believe that education is the greatest tool for fostering new stewards on our public lands?
