Field Naturalist at OCDE

The Orange County Department of Education’s Inside the Outdoors program is currently recruiting for energetic professionals to serve as Field Naturalists for the OCDE Inside the Outdoors (ITO) School and Field Programs. Our ITO School and Field Programs are a unique and hands-on science, social science, and environmental education program that provide field trips for kindergarten through seventh grade students.

San Antonio College, Santiago Oaks Regional Park, Rancho Soñado, or Irvine Regional Park).  Students will study tidepools, chaparrals, riparian (stream), and estuary ecosystems. Information on Native American lifestyles and geology are also integrated into the program. Field Naturalists will teach virtually and in-person.  Starting pay: $16.00 per hour.
