Urban Forest Educators
A branch of the Seattle Volunteer Naturalist Program

Urban Forest Educators are volunteers who engage young people in the restoration of Seattle’s forested parks and greenspaces by leading environmental learning and stewardship opportunities.

As an Urban Forest Educator, you will:

  • Receive training on Pacific Northwest forest ecology, habitat restoration, and environmental education techniques for diverse audiences.
  • Lead learning and stewardship events (interpretive forest walks, invasive plant removal, native plant installation, and more) in Seattle’s urban forest with young people.

Become an Urban Forest Educator today!
Training will occur on September 18, September 25, and October 2. Service opportunities will take place on weekdays in Fall 2014, Winter 2015, and beyond.

Apply by August 18!

For more information, see the job description that has additional program details.
