Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
The Educator will work with the Director of Education and other education staff to prepare and present high quality environmental education programs at the center and occasionally off site. Additionally, the Educator will aid in pre and post evaluation, program development, teaching, marketing and program preparations. This position is based out of Trinity River Audubon Center and may also require assisting with education and/or outreach programming at the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center, located in Cedar Hill.
This role will work a maximum of 25 hours per week on an as-needed basis. The number of hours will vary depending on the season. The position is expected to begin in October / early November 2019. No housing is provided.
