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.


Audubon has more than 700 staff working across the United States and seven countries in 17 state and regional offices, 41 nature centers, and 23 wildlife sanctuaries. Together as one Audubon, we aspire to alter the course of climate change and habitat loss, leading to healthier bird populations and reversing current trends in biodiversity loss.


Audubon is committed to a culture of workplace excellence, where our talented and diverse staff are deeply engaged, with a strong sense of belonging. The birds Audubon pledges to protect differ in color, size, behavior, geographical preference, and countless other ways. By honoring and celebrating the equally remarkable diversity of the human species, Audubon will bring new creativity, effectiveness, and leadership to our work throughout the hemisphere.

Position Summary

The Community Naturalist Program seeks to hire a newly graduated or early career educator interested in pursuing education and science careers in the state and an opportunity to begin their careers here in Wyoming. These early career educators will learn from Audubon educators and gain experience from natural resource partners in the state. In turn, these early career educators will engage with Wyoming youth and their families to provide opportunities to learn about Wyoming's natural heritage. The Wyoming Naturalist Banding and Outreach Intern position combines community-based research and a chance to conduct basic conservation biology and environmental education. Two major activities are involved: (1) assisting outreach staff at the Audubon Rockies with educational programming and (2) conducting bird banding/outreach activities on public and private lands throughout Wyoming. Other fieldwork may include point counts, area searches, nest searches, and pollinator counts. Educational outreach will involve assistance with the community naturalist program. Work is from early morning till mid-day, 3-4 days per week, followed by daily data entry when applicable totaling approximately 20-28 hours per week. A rental vehicle will be provided for any field travel.
