Job Opportunities

Founded more than 50 years ago in 1965 as a pioneer in a then-new field called environmental education, we are still pioneering.

Our Nature Preschool, started in only 2013, was the first such nature-based program in Pennsylvania. Since 2000, we have operated a cutting-edge environmental art program, the only one of its kind in an American nature center. Founded in 1987, our Wildlife Clinic is one of the few in the region, and the only one in the City of Philadelphia. Our Camp Schuylkill, after-school program, and day-off camps provide thousands of kids with immersive experiences in nature, which mounting evidence shows benefits children, and people, in innumerable ways.

We are a leader in land restoration and stewardship practices as well, using our 340 acres of open space, the largest privately protected open space in Philadelphia, as a living laboratory for balancing stewardship with active use.
