Urban Conservation Educator - Field Museum


The Urban Conservation Educator will support the work of the Youth Conservation Action (YCA) team in the Field Museum’s Keller Science Action Center. The Field Museum’s KSAC leverages museum collections and expertise to translate science into lasting results for conservation and cultural understanding in the Chicago region and around the world. Integral to this effort is the ability to foster positive connections to nature, train the next generation of conservation leaders, and build the capacity of the Field Museum and its partners to best support future leaders. The Youth Conservation Action’s Urban Conservation Educator will support and lead environmental education and community engagement efforts that build the capacity of local educators to connect young people to nature. The Urban Conservation Educator will work with Keller Center staff on creative, collaborative and innovative community-based conservation projects.
