Outdoor Education Volunteers Needed

Volunteers would work with students on field trips to Durham Ferry Outdoor Education Center

The Durham Ferry Outdoor Education Center is looking for volunteers passionate about nature who would like to share their love of the outdoors on field trips for elementary school students.

Durham Ferry volunteers will run hands-on learning stations during field trips for third- through fifth-grade students. No background in education or science is required. Training will be provided, and the time commitment is flexible. Volunteers will be required to work outside and be able to walk on uneven surfaces.

Located along a bend in the San Joaquin River about 7 miles south of Manteca, the Durham Ferry Outdoor Education Center offers field trips that provide student-centered, inquiry-based outdoor education for students to inspire lifelong curiosity and wonder of the natural world.

The Durham Ferry Outdoor Education Center is part of San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE) STEM Programs.  To learn more about Durham Ferry, please go to http://bit.ly/DurhamFerryOutdoorEd.
