While do not currently have any job openings, we are gearing up for staffing our summer camps. We will be hiring summer camp counselors that will work with elementary-aged children in a natural setting. Our counselors need to be over 18 years old, and if you love kids and want to share your love for fun and the natural world, fill out this form, and we’ll be in touch!
We are also looking for a child care health consultant (CCHC). This position needs to be a registered nurse, and would be ideal for someone who wants employment for the summer (or a portion of the summer). Please fill out this form if you would like more information on this position.
We love our volunteers, and we could not do all that we are able to do without them. There are two main ways to engage as a volunteer: as docents at our Nature Center and as naturalists for our school programs. See the links below for more information:
Nature Center Docents: Do you love being outside and also helping others learn and appreciate nature? If you are looking for a way to volunteer for Durango Nature Studies that doesn’t require a lot of time, but gives you the satisfaction of serving the community, becoming a Nature Center Docent just might be the thing for you. Contact us!
Volunteer Naturalists: Volunteering with Durango Nature Studies is a great way to learn hands-on activities that teach kids about nature and science. Volunteer Naturalists learn curriculum to teach all Durango students in grades K through 8, plus many school groups from surrounding areas. Once completed, you will join an amazing group of alumni who are fully qualified to lead nature-based, science field trips for kids at our Nature Center or on snowshoes at Haviland Lake.
