~ Live at beautiful Cachuma Lake while working for a good cause! ~
Would you like to contribute to a great organization while living in the spectacular environment of Cachuma Lake in Central California's famous Wine Country? Just 20 minutes from Santa Barbara and the quaint Danish town of Solvang, the Neal Taylor Nature Center is a thriving nonprofit located within the popular Cachuma Lake Recreation Area.
The Nature Center attracts Cachuma Lake campers and locals mainly from the Central Coast, but also from all around the country and internationally. Many school groups come to the Center as a highlight of their field trip schedule. Our focus is on environmental education and bringing an appreciation of nature to all who visit.
We are looking for camp hosts to start beginning September 1st 2021 and hosting through April 2022 - a lovely time of year here! Preferably 6 months but 3 months possible. Responsible, self-directed, organized, friendly people are always welcome to help here!
Depending on your abilities, duties include office and computer work, opening and closing the Nature Center, cleaning, running our gift shop, and taking care of our birds and fish. If you're interested in or have training in working with our many school groups, we could especially use you, although this is not a requirement. We are also always looking for hosts with strong computer skills and/or outdoor maintenance experience.
Our camp hosts volunteer 20 hours a week at the Nature Center in exchange for a full-hookup RV site (water, electricity, sewer). Hours are somewhat flexible but revolve around the Center's 10AM- 4PM Tuesday-Saturday, 10AM- 2PM Sunday schedule.
