St. Louis Audubon Education Committee Needs New Recruits!!

If you enjoy working with children and adults and talking about nature, why not join the Education Committee. We are looking for new people to work with us and give presentations on all kinds of subjects. We talk with school children, civic groups, scouts, libraries, churches garden clubs and anyone else interested in nature. We just completed a full day of activities for some Junior Girl Scouts to allow them to earn their Wildlife Badge. We do not require you to have any special knowledge--we will train you and give you outlines for our programs. Our new people do not give programs until they are comfortable with a topic. For more information please contact Lisa Nansteel at education@stlouisaudubon.org or (636) 391-4898.
