If you have a special interest in nature and the outdoors, enjoy sharing your knowledge with children, and would like to learn more about the natural world, you may enjoy participating in Flat Rock Brook's volunteer trail guide program. Since 1974, the Trail Guides of Flat Rock Brook have taught nature study classes outdoors to elementary school children.
New recruits learn from experienced guides teaching children on nature walks. Trail guides also participate in educational workshops and attend field trips to various natural areas throughout the region. The training program is free. Sessions are held in March, April, May, September and October with indoor lectures and outdoor exploration on our trails.
Graduated trail guides lead at least five nature walks weekday mornings or afternoons in April, May, and June and at least five in September, October, and November.
This innovative volunteer program is always seeking new teachers. Experience working with children required. Must be available weekdays in the spring, summer and/or fall. Minimum age requirement is 21 years old.
