The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit conservation organization that protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. We work throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation. Audubon’s state, regional, national, and international programs, nature centers, and chapters have an unparalleled wingspan that reaches millions of people each year to inform, inspire, and unite diverse communities in conservation action. As a sentinel species, we recognize that the fate of birds is inextricably tied to the fate of us all.
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is a private not-for-profit Audubon Sanctuary encompassing 13,450 acres in Southwest Florida’s western Everglades. Being a part of the Sanctuary team means making a difference for conservation. The Seasonal Campus Host position is a part-time seasonal position requiring an average of 15 hours of work per week in support of essential end-of-day and Center-related functions.
Seasonal Campus Hosts support Blair Visitor Center operations by ensuring all visitors have safely exited the boardwalk at the close of business hours, and by securing the gates and parking lot. Additionally, Campus Hosts serve as on-site staff point of contacts for Audubon's alarm company and special guests. These responsibilities are scheduled in shifts with others. When not working, opportunities abound for Campus Hosts interested in volunteering in public education, natural resource protection, maintenance, and more. This is an exciting seasonal opportunity to work with a leader within the conservation industry.
Seasonal Campus Hosts are required to live on-site in their personal RV (Recreational Vehicle) on one of Audubon’s two RV pads. The RV pads are nestled in the pine flatwoods on campus. Each site is equipped with water, sewer and electricity hook-ups as well as a private outdoor patio and grill. Corkscrew Swamp is a remote location.
