Position Description: Nature Forward’s Conservation Program seeks 1-3 Seasonal Environmental Outreach Specialists to support our outreach projects around the Washington, DC region. A typical week might include joining a virtual planning meeting for an event the following month, stopping by our Woodend Nature Sanctuary headquarters in Chevy Chase to pick up event supplies, updating the inventory list, attending a training on how to lead nature walks, calling partners in other organizations to confirm details for this weekend’s event, drafting a flyer in Canva and making copies, distributing flyers across the community including food distribution events, texting and calling community members and volunteers to be sure they know where and when to come, making a grocery run, arriving at the event with the supplies, setting up tables and activities, helping run the event, and then packing up and cleaning the gear and delivering it back to Woodend. On any given week you might be helping lead a water quality monitoring/macroinvertebrate identification event in Prince George’s County, helping with a nature walk in Fairfax County, planting trees in Washington, DC, or going on a boat ride on the Anacostia River. You will get to know the region and its communities.
