Position Summary: Provides field education support for the Shane Hulsey CLEAN Education Program and other youth and adult environmental education programs of the Cahaba River Society. Occasionally supports field programs for Stewardship and Recreation. Support staff for stream walks, teacher training, and CLEAN canoe trips.
About the Cahaba River Society (CRS): Founded in 1988, CRS leads our community to restore and protect the Cahaba River watershed and its rich diversity of life. The diverse lives depending on the Cahaba include the people of Birmingham and central Alabama as well as the River’s globally significant biodiversity of freshwater wildlife. The Cahaba, the heart of “America’s Amazon,” has more fish species per mile than any other river in North America and a similar rich diversity of other river life. The Cahaba is a major source of the Birmingham area’s drinking water, and CRS’ service area – the “peopleshed” of those whose lives are affected by the River – is larger than the watershed, including Jefferson, Shelby, Bibb, Perry and Dallas County, stretching from Birmingham to the Black Belt.
Through collaboration, river restoration policy advocacy, and bringing people to the River for hands-on education, recreation, and volunteerism, we have been building community support and making a lasting positive impact for over 30 years. Learn more about the full range of our goals, partners, programs and successes at www.cahabariversociety.org.
Staff and Board Relationships: Supervised by the Education Director. Field Programs Director leads all canoe trips.
