Volunteers Needed to Lead K-2 Outdoor Natural Science Lessons for Kids! Want to learn more about nearby nature? Eager to share the joy of discovery with children? Become a Four Winds volunteer and join a group of community members who share both an interest in nature and a love of children. Four Winds is a community-based organization that provides natural science education for all ages. As a Four Winds Nature Program volunteer, you will bring fun and engaging natural science lessons to the children at Great Salt Bay School and get children outside as part of the school curriculum. Adult volunteers meet for two hours every month during the school year, right at Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust, for a workshop taught by a naturalist from the Four Winds staff. Each month we’ll learn about a fascinating natural science topic with activities designed to teach children in grades K-2 about this topic. Outdoors, we’ll explore the school grounds and nearby woods and fields. Then, later in the month, volunteers will bring these lessons to the classes, leading children in the activities and taking them outside for an up-close look at the month’s topic. This is a great way to meet other people in our community and give the important and rewarding gift of your time to the children in our school. For more information, please email Betsy Ball, the program volunteer coordinator, at ​​. You can also find out more by visiting Four Winds’ website at​. Our first training meeting will be Thursday, September 26 at 12-2pm in The David Moses Bridges Education Hall in the new Coastal Rivers building at 3 Round Top Lane, Damariscotta. Please join us!
