Are you passionate about environmental education? Would you like to know more about the unique desert ecology that makes Sabino Canyon such a special place? Are you interested in desert plants and wildlife, native and natural history, aquatic life and geology?
Influence the future
Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists interpret nature for young people, grades K-6. Helping to influence the future while having fun!
We Train You
We train a new class of naturalists beginning in October of each year. Our 15-week program is taught by local experts on topics like herpetology, birds, desert and riparian ecology, ancient peoples, and much more. Ongoing Advanced Training keeps our members up to date on Sabino Canyon.
And, it’s fun
Once you’re trained, you’ll be asked to give one morning a week October through April to our elementary or kindergarten program. Once you have more experience, you can lead adult nature walks or hikes, or participate in other public interpretation activities.
