VOLUNTEER TRAINING: Interpretation

February 22 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$15.00

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 18 and UP

Whether leading field trips for school groups, answering questions at the front desk of a Nature Center, eradicating invasive species from open spaces, or hiking the trails of your favorite park, if you help others connect to a place or resource that’s important to you, you are an interpreter! If this title comes as a surprise or is new to you, or even if you’ve identified as an interpreter for years, this training is designed to give you new tools to share knowledge and excitement about the places and resources you love.

Although open to the general public, this training is highly recommended for individuals interested in becoming an Ijams Volunteer. For participants who become a regular volunteer, the fee for this training will cover your volunteer onboarding fee.

Ijams is currently seeking enthusiastic volunteers who want to share their love of nature with others through our Field Trip programs. Ijams Field Trip Volunteers lead and assist with field-based programs for schools and organizations, which bring their students to Ijams for hands-on experiences that relate to concepts being taught in the classroom. This position requires weekday morning availability and additional training provided by Ijams.

LOCATION
