The Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment (AWARE) has been Whistler’s environmental charity for 30 years. We work to progress community-scale solutions to some of the biggest challenges of our time. Climate Change. Habitat Loss. Wildlife. Waste. Water. Biodiversity. Wilderness. We work independently and with others to connect people with nature and build more sustainable communities.
Every member of our small but dedicated team has the opportunity to create change from within the programs they work on – whether inspiring future generations to care about the environment, helping people grow local organic food, or supporting businesses to reduce waste. We find ways to connect with the things people care about and focus on finding shared values as a route to changing behaviours and shifting unsustainable cultural norms. AWARE is looking for outgoing, accountable and enthusiastic individuals to join our summer nature camp team as nature interpreters.
Our team of Nature Interpreters delivers Whistler Nature Camp – a summer program intended to get youth outside exploring and learning about nature. At Nature Camp, we utilize education, appreciation and experience to encourage a love of nature – because we protect what we love.
The Nature Interpreter role is well suited to people who have interest and experience in some or all of the following: the sciences; youth education; communication and interpretation.
Successful candidates will work with program leads to connect residents and visiting youth with Whistler’s diverse natural environments. The position is for up to 40 hours per week and for a term of 9 weeks. Whistler Nature Camp runs through July & August, with a week of training in the last week of June. With youth and nature programming throughout the year, there may be an opportunity for positions to be extended for the right candidate.
Interested candidates are invited to submit a resume and cover letter detailing their relevant interest and experience by email to email@example.com .
Please reference Posting No. 19-01 in your application.
Application deadline is March 31, 2020.
