Volunteers are needed to help facilitate our seed germination activity and engage with our community.

This volunteer opportunity is for Thursdays and Fridays during the school year, with opportunities over the Summer. Volunteers will learn about rainforest ecology and co-teach virtual or in-person lessons for local schools alongside Friends of the Rainforest staff. Lesson topics include tropical birds, plants and insects, cultural history, and sustainability.
