Seattle’s Volunteer Naturalist Program is looking for candidates who are interested and eager to share the flora and fauna in Seattle’s parks with the community.

Seattle Parks and Recreation oversees this volunteer program and training begins March 22nd with applications due February 12th.  Volunteers train for 10 weeks and commit to assisting with 12 programs a year at Environmental Learning Centers and in parklands working with school groups, families, and adults.The program’s objective is “to enhance, promote and foster appreciation of nature by connecting citizens and students with their Seattle parklands, by providing educational opportunities for all.”

To learn more about the program please visit the Seattle Volunteer Naturalist Program page.

For more information about volunteering and to get an application, please email Penny Rose at penny.rose@seattle.gov or call her at 206-386-4250.

We hope to see some Fremont Volunteer Naturalists out there in 2014!
