As the 2019/2020 school year takes off, Santa Barbara Audubon Society is looking for the next elementary-school teacher to teach its Meet Your Wild Neighbor (MYWN) program.
For years, MYWN has brought a curriculum of science education to 1st- and 2nd-grade classrooms here in Santa Barbara. The program visits classrooms once a week for a five-week series. Each series includes classroom visits by our live raptors, a neighborhood bird walk, and a field trip to Lake Los Carneros. The impact of such lessons lasts far beyond the classroom: it’s an opportunity for young people to get outdoors and learn hands-on in nature.
This year will see a strengthening and revitalization of our past curriculum. SBAS is pressing forward to create new partnerships with under-served schools in our community. Now we need a teacher to deliver the program in 1st- and 2nd-grade classrooms.
