Audubon Adventures Coordinator

Audubon Adventures is National Audubon Society’s (NAS) award-winning environmental education program. Designed by the environmental experts at NAS, it boasts top-quality educational materials. Through our Adopt-a-Classroom Program, Lane County Audubon offers teachers in grades 3–5 an opportunity to participate at no cost to their schools.

LCAS is looking for someone who can link participating teachers with the generous sponsors of this program. If you have a computer and a little time, this might be the volunteer opportunity you’ve been looking for! It takes flexibility, organization, and a sense of timing to make things work well for the teachers and sponsors.

Outreach to schools and sponsors begins in September. Orders for the kits are placed in October. Maintaining contact with the teachers throughout the school year is crucial. The coordinator will follow up by making sure they’ve received their kits, seeing if they need any additional help, and checking in with them at the end of the school year.

FMI: Maeve Sowles audubon@laneaudubon.org or 541.343.8664 if this rewarding position interests you. We’ll be happy to provide you with all the information and training you need to manage the program.
