From parks along the Long Island Sound coastline to those in the hills in northern Westchester, our six nature centers and parks that lie within are home to a number of habitats and host a great range of biological diversity. Naturalists assist with environmental education, biodiversity study and land management. The nature centers also host a number of school and scout groups, public programming, and the Children’s Summer Ecology Camp, a nature-based summer camp for students entering grades 1-9.


Duties include but are not limited to: environmental and natural/human history education; natural resource management including field work; public interaction and education; and trail and habitat and grounds maintenance involving the use of hand tools and power equipment.  


Applicants should possess a love of nature, a willingness to be outdoors and the ability to communicate effectively. Preference will be given to candidates with a proven history of environmental education or research, yet all applications are welcome. Graduation from an accredited college or university with a Bachelor's degree in natural or life sciences, natural history, park management, environmental education or a closely related field is preferred.


The position of Naturalist/Educator is an hourly position. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with summer hours of Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Salary is commensurate with experience.
