Position description 

We are seeking energetic, motivated individuals with a deep respect for the natural environment to deliver fun, educational programs in parks across BC this summer! You will join a network of staff and volunteers across the province. You will engage children and adults about responsible recreation and local flora and fauna. You will add value to the experience of park visitors through your engaging programs, and help visitors appreciate the features that make each park a special place. Note that hiring for these positions is dependent on the outcome of pending funding applications.

What does a typical day look like?  

Your days will be split between working from home (1-2 days/week) and in Parks (3-4 days/week). When working from home, you’ll have team meetings, reflect on the previous weekend, plan for the coming weekend, prepare for programs, draft posters, and brush up on your local knowledge. When working in Parks, you’ll check in with your local park staff, set up your information booth and engage with visitors about local flora and fauna. You might run a nature walk with families, before collecting observations of nature with iNaturalist. You’ll finish the day running fun kids’ activities such as plant scavenger hunts and games about local animals, then pack up for the day. On some Saturdays, your schedule will be shifted so that you can run evening amphitheatre programs at your Park/s.
