Teaching Naturalist

Want to teach kids while exploring the outdoors? Look no further. We are hiring!!!

We need enthusiastic, creative and fun people to join our team!

Located on the beautiful Wisconsin River, working alongside a team of naturalists, you will be able to share your passion by teaching children in an outdoor laboratory. Providing children and adults with an awareness and appreciation for the environment gives them an understanding of the importance of conserving the world around them.  Upham Woods has adventure-based classes where children get to explore caves on Blackhawk Island and canoe the Wisconsin River. Teaching Naturalists facilitate a wide range of environmental, outdoor and experiential education programs, including lake ecology, herpetology, canoeing, team building, and challenge courses. This job also includes assisting in program development/updates, animal husbandry/training (with raptors, reptiles and amphibians), and materials/area maintenance. This job is perfect for anyone that is enthusiastic, dedicated and enjoys working with children.
