Description
The South Carolina Waterfowl Association is looking for seasonal Natural Resource Instructors to help implement Camp Leopold, a program designed to immerse students in the outdoors and develop an understanding and appreciation for the natural world. Each instructor will teach school groups that come from all parts of South Carolina. Schools will participate in either a 1 day, 2 day, or 2.5 day program. The instructor will help prepare the facility for upcoming groups, teach classes in environments ranging from wetland ecosystems to mixed deciduous forests, and ensure that teachers and students alike are given an enjoyable, engaging, and enlightening trip. Housing will be provided at our 537 acre Wildlife Education Center (WEC) in our picturesque VIP Cabin, which is less than a mile from Lake Marion and within an hour's drive of both Charleston and Columbia. The WEC offers opportunities for hiking, canoeing, and fishing for those who live on site. Meals will be provided when school groups are attending (meals are not provided on weekends or when the facility has not been booked), and there are laundry facilities on site. As an intern of the South Carolina Waterfowl Association, chosen applicants will also gain experience in fundraising for the organization at conservation dinners and auctions, as well as gain experience in wildlife habitat management. Applicants may also be asked to guide waterfowl hunts for SCWA during the Camp Leopold off-season (for additional pay). Candidates may be considered for other employment options within the organization after successfully demonstrating the ability to perform expected duties. Position will start on August 9th, 2017 and run through May 18th, 2018. For more information on our Camp Leopold program, please visit our website at http://www.wildlifeedcenter.org/camp-leopold/
