Each member will serve 900 hours over a 6-month term (roughly full-time), from January 16, 2019 through July 31, 2019. Members connect people with nature and enhance quality of life through conservation education, volunteer recruitment/coordination, and trail creation/improvement. Members improve environmental conditions in WNC through activities including habitat restoration, water quality monitoring, and public land and river improvements projects.
This AmeriCorps Position is hosted by Mountain Roots. The Outdoor Education instructor assists with the facilitation and development of our growing Outdoor Education programs as we expand our outreach programs into low income communities. Mountain Roots OE programs are integrated into weekly programming at several local public schools. Mountain Roots programs are relatively new and expanding throughout the region. We reach students from a range of backgrounds as we introduce and inspire them with the wonders of nature in their backyard. This position also involves a key role in our outdoor-based summer camps. By the design of our program, we are able to influence hundreds of participants at local public schools--aligning both our vision of more kids exploring outside and connecting with nature.
