Audubon Society is hiring teacher-naturalists

The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Larsen Sanctuary in Fairfield is hiring teacher-naturalists for its new flagship education program, “Science In Nature.”

The program provides K-12 students outdoor, hands-on, inquiry-based education experiences which are fully integrated into their curriculum. The goal is to help create a deeper, long-term commitment to conservation, as well as contribute to the health and academic success of our state’s children.

The new program explores four habitat types: woodland, freshwater marsh, meadow and pond. During each visit students investigate the habitat types in the context of weather/climate, geology and adaptations.

“Teachers whose students have participated in the program have loved what CAS offers.” said Nelson North, Connecticut Audubon Society’s director of Fairfield operations.

Teacher-naturalists are responsible for teaching outdoor and classroom natural science programs to a variety of audiences, from early learners to adults. Applicants with a minimum of one year teaching experience with proven skills teaching in formal and/or informal settings may apply.
