Seattle Volunteer Naturalist Program

Seattle Volunteer Naturalists Program

Interested in learning more about the flora and fauna of the Puget Sound region? Do you love sharing nature with others? Then you might be the perfect candidate for the Seattle Volunteer Naturalist program. Volunteer Naturalists participate in 10 weeks of training and commit at least one year to volunteering at Environmental Learning Centers and Parklands near schools throughout Seattle.  Volunteer naturalists provide hands-on learning opportunities for school groups; ages pre-school through 12th grade and programs for families and adults.  Volunteers’ backgrounds are as varied as the students they teach - the common thread is their desire to share nature with the greater Seattle community.

Deadline for applications is February 10, 2012

Training begins in March of 2012

Adopt-An-Area - Environmental Stewardship / Habitat Restoration

The purpose of Discovery Park's "Adopt-an-Area" program is to improve habitat for wildlife in the park's 534 acres. Within the park there are forests, meadows, thickets, wetlands, and beach habitats. Volunteers do a number of activities including invasive removal, beach cleanups, and planting trees. People are matched with their interests and time commitment. You can volunteer as an individual, or group.

For more information, contact the "Adopt-an-Area" supervisor at (206) 386-4295 or sandra.demeritt@seattle.gov.


Advisory Council

The Discovery Park Advisory Council is the official citizen group that advises on the education programs, needs, and issues of the Park and oversees the program budget. They also support and implement the Park's Master Plan and ensure that the natural environment is protected, restored, and interpreted. We are currently looking for teachers and individuals with fundraising experience to join the Discovery Park Advisory Council.

If you are interested, please call manager at (206) 233-3712.
