Seattle Audubon's Junior Naturalist program provides volunteer leadership opportunities at Nature Camp for high school teens entering 10th-12th grade. Junior Naturalists work closely with staff Naturalists to teach about birds and nature. They help supervise campers, lead games and songs, read stories, and lead at least one group activity per week.

Junior Naturalists work at least two full weeks of the summer, but may volunteer for more than two weeks if space is available. A half-day orientation and training is required prior to the first week of camp. This year we are offering internship opportunities for high schoolers entering 11th or 12th grade. The internship positons ask teens to take on more responsibility and may have later hours, and comes with a stipend of $110 per week worked. The application process is rolling; we accept Junior Naturalists throughout the summer if positions are available!

To be eligible, teens must:

  • be entering the 10th grade or higher for volunteer Junior Naturalist positions; 11th grade or higher for the paid internship positions.
  • have a genuine interest in nature and children.
  • pass an application and screening process.
‚ÄčImportant Note: Applications and inquiries must come from the teens applying. Applications sent in by parents will not be accepted.
