Do you love teaching people about our natural world? Does working with kids excite you? You might be interested in becoming one of our dedicated Assistant Naturalists (ASNATs for short.) ASNATs help in leading groups of all ages but focus mainly on children visitors. ASNAT classes are given once a month to better prepare for interpreting the world around you to our inquisitive guests. Come strengthen your skills and inspire people for years to come.
The adult classes are held on Saturdays and usually start at 12:00 pm and run to 3:00 pm. Classes are open to Assistant Naturalists only. If you would like to become a part of this rewarding program, please fill out and submit an interest form.
