Teatown Nature Guides - Leading The Way For Youngsters
Teatown has a foolproof recipe for discovery. Mix together a generous portion of simple wonders, add a dash of excitement, lots of enthusiasm, then throw in kids. of all shapes and sizes. Only one ingredient is missing for a truly remarkable experience - adults who can stir up a big batch of adventurous fun. Teatown is seeking volunteer Nature Guides to lead school children on outdoor discoveries. Training sessions for new volunteers will be on Thursdays, September 14, 21, and 28, from 9 am to 12 noon. No experience is necessary. Nature guides commit to volunteer 2 hours per week during school hours to share in the delight of discovery with visiting students. Monthly guide meetings throughout the school year highlight topics in natural history and environmental education. If you enjoy the company of children and like the outdoors consider becoming a Guide.
