LOVELAND, Colo. – Do you want to inspire curiosity for nature in people of all ages? Do you love spending time outdoors? Join Larimer County Department of Natural Resources as a Volunteer Naturalist!
Volunteer Naturalists teach school groups, talk with visitors to Larimer County’s parks and open spaces, and lead hikes on ecology, geology, local history and more.
“Being a Volunteer Naturalist is a great way to enhance your understanding of the natural world and gain valuable and rewarding volunteer experience,” said educator Heather Young. “Plus, you’re a part of a community that cares about the environment and inspires others to appreciate it.”
No experience in the fields of environmental education or ecology is required. Volunteer Naturalists must attend a training, pass a background check and have transportation.
An in-depth training will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the day for three consecutive weeks starting March 21, 2018, with instruction on teaching, public speaking, geology, ecology and more.
