Seasonal Naturalist

Montana Natural History Center

Have fun, get outdoors, and make a difference this summer while gaining valuable training and experience working in environmental education! Seasonal Naturalists will provide leadership and instruction for the full-day Summer Outdoor Discovery Day Camps at the Montana Natural History Center. Seasonal Naturalists will facilitate and lead various activities and themed camps, connect youth to nature, and explore the outdoors with children of different ages. The week of July 4th will be an unpaid week off, and one other unpaid week off will be given to all seasonal naturalists if scheduling permits.
