Maine Audubon is seeking an Environmental Education Intern for the Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center.
The environmental education intern leads educational programs on salt-marsh ecology at Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center (training provided). These 1.5-hour, hands-on nature explorations for groups of all ages are held Monday through Friday from April 29 to June 14.
After June 14, the center is open to the public seven days a week, and the intern assists with a variety of family, children and adult programs throughout the summer (August 30). In addition, the intern will complete a project mutually designed with the supervisor, such as making displays and interactive exhibits, updating the teacher and volunteer packets with current background information and activities, and designing and creating new props and activities for programs.
Benefits are negotiable depending on the time commitment. Possible contract work is available. Benefits may include: free canoe rentals; 25 percent discount on store merchandise; discounted or free admission to Maine Audubon programs and trips; enrichment in natural history and educational techniques.
The position runs early May through August and usually consists of 120 hours or more. Internships can also occur for a month or shorter period during the summer. Time commitment and scheduling are flexible.
