Work environment

You also coach and mentor other Interpretive team members, Wildlife Guardians and entry level interpreters as they learn their programs and you work together to get everything ready for the summer. It’s a busy time, but the creative energy is exhilarating!

In summer, on a typical afternoon/evening shift, you go into the office to catch up on what’s going on, then pack up an activity kit and head to a busy day use area. There you may facilitate the Sticks, Stones and Bison Bones activity helping families have fun at a mock archaeology dig site, or play a game of Whitebark Pine Jeopardy. After a break and some office time, you head to the interpretive theatre to deliver the evening program. Tonight you facilitate a program on species at risk. At the end of the evening program you leave visitors with ideas for actions they can take to help wildlife.
