Join our dynamic and supportive team in meaningful work that changes lives! In this unique position, you will provide education and horticultural expertise to under-represented and under-resourced audiences in prisons and juvenile detention facilities. This work directly benefits critical habitat (greater sage-grouse) and supports threatened and endangered butterflies and plants. Additionally, you will help build a new program focused on developing peer networks for increasing native plants in home landscapes.


The Ecological Education Program at the IAE offers educational opportunities for students of all ages from K-12 to adult community members and specialty audiences, such as teachers or adults in custody. Through outreach activities and informal science education, we engage people in meaningful place-based active education conducted in schools, camps, prisons, and in the wider communities that we serve. We work with other nonprofit partners, community members, departments of correction, schools, granting organizations, and federal agencies to deliver education focused on connecting people to nature. Our efforts are primarily focused on underserved, under-resourced, and diverse audiences.
