We work with federal agencies, nonprofit partners, schools, and community members to deliver education focused on connecting people with nature. The Southwest Education and Outreach Coordinator organizes events and formal and informal educational opportunities, manages volunteers, curates newsletter and social media content, designs graphics for outreach materials, and develops curricula on native plants and pollinators.
