Environmental Science Educator Role

NatureBridge environmental science educators are skilled professionals who provide student groups with meaningful experiences in one of the world’s best classrooms—our national parks. Programming is guided by the integration of our three pillars: science; social and emotional learning; and equity, inclusion and diversity, as outlined in our Theory of Change.

NatureBridge programs connect students to nature, develop students’ relationship skills, build students’ skills in, appreciation for and interest in science and empower students to take responsibility for themselves, others and our planet.

Experiences are intentionally crafted so students develop knowledge, attitudes and skills to act as environmental stewards. We commit to helping educators grow and refine their craft. We foster a growth mindset and value a willingness to challenge one’s self to grow. Educators meeting or exceeding expectations will receive an invitation to return the following season / school year. Our aim is to help educators to deliver high quality NatureBridge programming, and develop skills that can be leveraged in future endeavors.
