Volunteers Needed for Young Naturalist’s Club on Edisto Island!

The Edisto Island Open Land Trust is looking for adults to assist with the Young Naturalist’s Club, an after school program for third, fourth and fifth graders attending Jane Edwards Elementary School. The club meets once a month on Wednesdays. They explore different habitats on Edisto Island and learn to identify common plants and animals. Each session takes about two hours, which includes transportation time to and from the program site. Volunteers must enjoy working with children and be willing to familiarize themselves with the lesson plan and some background information prior to each session, which will be provided the week before. You will need to pass a criminal background check and complete an online training. We prefer volunteers who can commit to two or more sessions and who can transport students in their personal vehicles, although transporting students is not required to volunteer. Program dates: 10/28, 11/18, 1/20, 2/24, 3/16, 4/27, 5/18.
