Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to spend as much time as possible enjoying nature. Along the way I’ve learned a lot of stuff without realizing it. For instance, I can tell you about the the entire lifecycle of mayflies or the spawning behavior of salmon. Yes, I’ve read about those things to supplement my knowledge, but you can’t really understand how it all works until you see it in action. That’s the premise that NatureBridge is based on. They’re a San Francisco, CA based non-profit that has spent the last 40 years introducing “1 million young people to the wonder and science of nature in the world’s best classrooms—our national parks.”
NatureBridge envisions “a world where every student learns about the science of nature, is inspired by its beauty, and is motivated to take action to protect the natural world.” That sounds good to me, but it’s not something that can be accomplished in a normal classroom. NatureBridge uses five venues for its programming: Yosemite National Park, Golden Gate, Olympic National Park, Santa Monica Mountains, and Channel Islands National Park. They have a fantastic website, so I urge you to dive in and start exploring it. There’s a lot of information bout their School and Group Field Science, Family & Youth Programs, and Training & Tools. NatureBridge looks like an amazing organization, so you should definitely check out their Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Grants Manager (requires a few years of experience) and Field Science Educators. The latter position is available at all of their National Park locations, and they accept applications all year round.
