Hands-On Experience in the Classroom for Interns
The Baltimore Woods Nature in the City Internship offers a unique, hands-on experience for those interested in learning more about a career in environmental education. Our interns assist Baltimore Woods Nature Center educators with the award-winning Nature in the City program, which links urban schools with neighborhood green spaces through hands-on, minds-on environmental education. Nature in the City introduces Syracuse City School District students, grades K–5, to science and nature in their neighborhoods through a series of classroom and outdoor lessons.
During their internship interns will be responsible for assisting educators with:
- Leading individuals and small groups of students through activities in the classroom & outdoors;
- Encouraging students to participate and stay on task; and
- Carrying and setting up program materials.
At the end of their internship experience interns have the chance to present a lesson in a classroom under the supervision of a Baltimore Woods staff member. Interns may also write, edit, and create educational materials, and occasionally also assist with on-site school visits, public programs, camp, newsletters, special events, and other daily operations at Baltimore Woods Nature Center in Marcellus.
