WildLife Guards Crew Leader Position

Posted on Jun 13, 2016

Related to RTPI’s work with Audubon Connecticut in the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds is our partnership on the Bridgeport WildLife Guards project: http://rtpi.org/education/wildlife-guards/

RTPI is once again teaming up with Audubon Connecticut and the City of Bridgeport, Connecticut to run the 2016 WildLife Guards program, which trains, mentors, and employs ten local high schools students and two crew leaders who monitor nesting birds and engage visitors, families, and friends about the City’s Pleasure Beach and its ecosystem. The WildLife Guards offer unique activities for children like making their own Piping Plover, coastal ecology walks and trail hikes, seine netting and plant identification. The program features education, conservation and advocacy in action five days a week, reaching thousands of visitors over the summer and making a difference for rare or endangered plants and wildlife on Pleasure Beach while creating the next generation of environmentalists.
