    Organization: Gorman Heritage Farm 

    Education Volunteer for School Groups During the Work Week

    After training and shadowing, education volunteers lead groups of 10 children to specific stations around the Farm. At each stop there is an approximately 15 minute lesson. Of course, this is not a lecture but give-and-take with the children. Most tours include the compost pile, planting, Children's Garden, bees, goats, hen house, and corn grinding. A schedule given to you the morning of a tour you are to lead includes when and how long to be at each station.

    Training to be an education volunteer includes two 2-hour sessions. Of course, we are always willing to reteach, give you time to practice lessons, etc. After training we ask that you shadow at least two different experienced leaders. Unless you are extremely comfortable leading a group, we can accompany you for your first teaching experience. There is always one other adult, usually a teacher or parent chaperone, with your group.

    We provide a teaching binder and our own Gorman Heritage Farm Education website. The latter includes most of the teaching information you will need.

    From you we require a resume, background check ( we pay for and require  this from all staff and education volunteers), and two references.

    We prefer that volunteers work at least one morning a week, but we understand that you have other commitments. Most volunteers look ahead at the schedule and choose dates and times that fit their needs. A morning of leading usually runs from about 9:00 am - 12:00 pm or so.   

    Come join the fun of teaching the next generation while playing on the Farm!  Contact Claire Long at clong@gormanfarm.org for more information.

    Western Wildlife Corridor is dedicated to preserving and protecting the wooded hillsides in the beautiful Ohio River Valley on the west side of Cincinnati.  

    Each year volunteers remove Amur honeysuckle, garlic mustard and many other alien invaders that choke out the native plants.  The result is that WWC now boasts some of the best native wildflower viewing in Hamilton County while also creating a natural habitat for native animal species to thrive.  WWC has recently acquired new properties that need restoration, along with our older preserves that need a bit of maintenance.

    If you would like to volunteer for this important work, please contact WWC for habitat restoration times and dates.  A bonus benefit of volunteering is seeing and hiking woodland trails, many with panoramic views.

    For information about upcoming habitat restoration events contact Tim Sisson at 513-922-2104 or tsisson@fuse.net.
