Woodcock seeks volunteer teaching assistants

Woodcock Nature Center is seeking volunteer teaching assistants to help grow its education program, which offers more than 100 classes to 35 different schools in the region each year.

The nature center only has two educators on staff, and Woodcock Director Mike Rubbo said the center has had “a few people express interest” in the pilot program so far.

After being trained by Woodcock staff, each teaching assistant will teach one specific aspect of a program. Teaching assistants must commit to teaching two hours a week for six months and attend monthly meetings.

Adults who are eager to learn new things, enjoy working with children and are interested in participating in the program may contact Rubbo at 203-762-7280 or mrubbo@woodcocknaturecenter.org.

Woodcock Nature Center, 56 Deer Run Road, is a 44-year-old private, nonprofit source of nature and environmental education in Southwestern Connecticut. Information: woodcocknaturecenter.org.
