Volunteer Naturalist Training: Tualatin River NWR

Connect with your community and your local Wildlife Refuge! Become a Volunteer Naturalist with the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge and learn about the amazing wildlife who call the Refuge home while giving back.

Volunteer Naturalists welcome visitors, lead school and community field trips, facilitate opportunistic learning, and serve as a refuge resource. During the spring training volunteers will gain skills in environmental education, group management, and nature awareness all while exploring the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.

Once trained, volunteers commit to providing support to the Conservation Education program as field trip leaders, group guides, and classroom based informal educators.

Opportunities exist throughout the year, not just during the school year. Additional opportunities to work with varying age groups (including adults) and at different venues are available.

Sounds like so much fun, Jenna, and it's so important to get folks of all ages connected to nature. Thanks for posting and your great work at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. I wish I had more time to volunteer myself, buy hopefully a bunch of other folks can step up! :)
