Spring 2018 Volunteer Opportunity:
Olmsted NHS is currently seeking Park Educators
Park Educators work within the Education Division to support Good Neighbors: Landscape Design & Community Building- an active, place-based education program that fosters appreciation of the physical, social, and psychological value of public parks in local third graders.
Good Neighbors uses the restored landscape, historic design office, archival collection, and rehabilitated model shop to explore the history, art, science, and civics of landscape design and park stewardship. Participating students learn why parks are important for people, and begin to imagine their own role in the care and stewardship of these special landscapes.
Park Educators assist NPS staff with teaching and logistical oversight of on-site programming.
For more information on the program, visit the Good Neighbors page.
If you have any questions or would like to apply, please contact Brianne Cassetta by email or phone (617-566-1689 ext 238).
