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 300,000 children and adults through its programs. We are looking for help getting youth outside and connecting to the wild landscapes of Colorado!
Opportunities vary by season, time commitment, age requirements, and location. Education Program volunteers might facilitate After School Programs in Boulder County schools, co-teach Nature Preschool, or assist with Summer Camp Programs across Boulder County’s open spaces. Administrative Volunteers might work on fundraising, outreach, social media, bird banding data entry, land management, and so much more! All Volunteers and Interns work closely with Thorne staff with the goal of connecting youth to nature.
