Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group, Environmental Educator
The Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group, at the Salmon Center, strives to deepen the connection between land, people, and salmon through restoration, education, and research. Environmental Educators will support the organization by adding depth to the education team, further increasing its capacity to share the importance of healthy salmon populations and improved native species biodiversity in the Hood Canal Watershed. The Salmon Center is located on a beautiful repurposed family farm on the tip of the Hood Canal, with 40 acres that include multiple organic produce gardens, farm animals and a classroom. The site includes access to a trail system throughout the restored Union River Estuary Preserve, a fantastic location to teach students about native wildlife. Members will be implementing in-class programs in the majority of Mason County schools. Educators will also be joining local partners to support the Students in the Watershed program, Explore the Fjord and Farm Steward Summer camps, and carrying out fieldtrips and site visits around the Theler Wetlands and Salmon Center properties. The Salmon Center hopes to further increase its public educational offerings throughout the year, and educators will lead the charge in creating interpretive programs for the public. This is a 900 hour position with three potential start dates. Member stipend $1,450 per month and education award is $3,047.50 before taxes.

Member Duties : Environmental Educators will improve and implement the Salmon in the Classroom in class presentations with focus on teaching local 4th graders about a salmon's life cycle, and an end of program release event for Mason county schools. Members will assist with the coordination and implementation of the Students in the Watershed program, including teaching high school aged students about the environment and natural resources. Through out the summer, members will help carry out multiple summer camp offerings, including the Explore the Fjord and Farm Stewards programs. While mostly off site with Explore the Fjord, members will transport, educate and supervise the campers throughout their days in the field. Educators will help with occasional outreach events throughout the Hood Canal watershed, and on site events throughout their term. Finally, educators will lead the effort in implementing new public interpretation on the Salmon Center and Theler Wetland trail system.
