Fall Kids’ Farm Naturalist
Location of Volunteer Position: ,

Naturalists lead tours for up to 14 kids (and their chaperones) around our two-acre Kids’ Farm & Living Playground, observing nature and tasting the season’s bounties. When no tours are scheduled, volunteers may assist the OxEd team in a variety of farming and creative Kids’ Farm tasks. Only a moderate understanding of food and farming is necessary- training is provided and there are many ongoing opportunities to learn from our expert staff and fellow volunteers!

• 35+ hours of community service throughout the season
• Inspire the next generation to eat healthy foods, enjoy gardening, and appreciate nature
• Develop skills and experience teaching and facilitating outdoor environmental education
• Learn about and practice basic organic farming techniques
• Connect with other community members with shared interests
• Work as a team with Oxbow staff in a fun and collaborative environment
• Spend time exploring an organic farm and natural area in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley
• Bring home fresh, seasonal, organic produce every time you volunteer!

Commitment: On-farm training offered mid-September, then opportunity to volunteer one or more days per week (~two tours/day) through early November. Programs run during school hours Monday through Friday, with some weekend opportunities during the month of Oxtober. Longer term commitments are more than welcome!
