Audubon Volunteer Naturalists lead groups of 8 to 12 school students on field trips on the trails at Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve. Primary field trip seasons are September through October and March through early June. The typical naturalist leads 2 to 4 walks a month in season. Most field trips are during weekday school hours. Ages range from preschool through high school. You choose what days, age groups and topics you prefer to lead. Audubon Volunteer Naturalists also optionally assist with other education programs of Audubon. Pennsylvania-mandated child protection background check required (free for most people, details provided during training.) Onoing enrichment is provided at monthly meetings with a natural history program.

We may use Zoom sessions online or field training in person at Beechwood, depending on health guidelines or topic.
