Love the natural world that’s all around us? Volunteer to teach local elementary-school students about it! West Seattle’s own Sanislo Elementary is one of two schools where Seattle Audubon will place volunteers – provided they step up to help!

Want hands-on experience teaching science to kids? Seattle Audubon is looking for volunteers for its environmental education program at Sanislo and Graham Hill Elementary Schools!

Seattle Audubon’s Finding Urban Nature (FUN) is an environmental education program for Seattle Public Schools students. It introduces 3rd and 4th graders to the natural world in their own schoolyard habitats. FUN students participate in 4, one-hour lessons, over the course of 4 weeks during the month of April. Each lesson takes about one hour per classroom (usually 2 classrooms per school), and volunteers work with small groups of 5-7 students at a time. Training is provided and a background check is required.

Seattle Audubon provides environmental education at no cost to the district, so it relies on volunteers. Can you help? Please respond by 3/14/2014.

If you’re interested, please e-mail Mariekemariekes@seattleaudubon.org.
