Thorne Nature Experience is a non-profit organization that is committed to building Earth stewardship by connecting youth to nature through joyful, hands-on, place-based environmental education experiences. Founded in Boulder, CO in 1954, Thorne has a rich history and has reached more than 200,000 children and adults through its programs. We are looking for help getting youth outside and connecting to the wild landscapes of Colorado!
Volunteer and Intern opportunities vary by season, time commitment, and location. Opportunities include: assisting with outdoor Nature Preschool exploration, leading 2nd Grade Field Trip Programs in Boulder and Longmont, co-facilitating After School Programs in Boulder County schools, and assisting with Summer Camp Programs across Boulder County’s open spaces. Volunteers and Interns work closely with Thorne staff to mentor youth along their journey of nature connection, and will get more connected to nature themselves.
