Positions available for part-time interpretive naturalists|
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced it is accepting applications for seasonal, part-time interpretive naturalists at the Eddy Discovery Center in the Waterloo Recreation Area.
“Elevating interpretive education is a priority for the DNR, and the popularity of our visitor centers often is attributed to the outstanding programs offered by the interpreters,” said Education and Outreach Chief Douglas Finley. “At the Eddy Discovery Center, we’re introducing kids and families to the fascinating world of geology and the diverse, natural wonders of Waterloo. We want visitors to discover that geology is fun."
Part-time interpretive naturalists may work a total of 719 hours during a calendar year and will receive $7.43 per hour for their first full season. Days and hours vary. Candidates must be 18 years and older, and be willing to work a number of evenings, weekends and some holidays. Responsibilities include preparing and presenting natural resource-based programs to all age groups, answering phone calls and visitor questions, light cleaning and building maintenance, as well as other duties.
Job applications can be obtained at the Discovery Center, 17030 Bush Road, between Pierce and McClure Roads, in Chelsea, or by calling 734-475-3170. Applicants with a natural science or education background are preferred. Applications will be accepted through March 21, 2003.
