LEARN, LEAD & CONNECT

Do you have a passion, skill or naturalist expertise you want to share? We are always looking for content for our outings.  We’d love to hear from you.   Or perhaps you want to request a topic and an expert to lead.  Get in touch, we’d love to hear from you:  valleyflyingsquirrels (at) gmail.com

We also have leadership opportunities for youth (15-29 yrs). Here’s a short quiz to see if it might be a fit:

Thinking about your future and ways to make a difference?  

Curious about trying out new experiences to expand your horizons?

Interested in building your resume and expanding your professional networks?

Enjoy spending time in nature? 

If you answered yes to any of the above we have an exciting opportunity for you!

FSA is recruiting emerging leaders to support the planning, promotion and facilitation of our program.

If you’re interested complete our quick application form here and we’ll follow-up.  See possible positions below, but we have various jobs to be done so let us know your interests and we can see how we can accomodate them.

Want to check us out first?  Join us on the 3rd Saturday of the month – see details about our next event on the calendar page.

What’s in it for you?

If you have interest in any of the following careers/employment areas and want an opportunity to try them out and meet people with experience in these areas then this program is for you:

  • Teaching
  • Event planning
  • Biology / natural sciences
  • Environmental studies
  • Outdoor education
  • Communications and marketing
  • Community development
  • Active living

It’s no longer a secret, nature connection and outdoor education are vital for human health and preservation of the environment.  As a society we forgot that for a while and now we have to play catch-up.  And the race is on.  Reconnecting people with nature is a burgeoning new field and we need all hands on deck.  We need passionate, committed people who are excited to help grow this important field.  Come learn, lead and play with us for a few months.

Anyone completing at least 12 hours of volunteer time (3 sessions) will receive a certificate of recognition and a letter of support (on request).
