The Audubon Society of Portland is committed to equality of opportunity for all through equity practices, both in our workplace and in access to nature. (See our Diversity Statement, here.) Civic engagement and staff diversity are core strategic goals, as illuminated by the report Green 2.0 and formalized by board-approved strategy. The Audubon Society of Portland is an equal opportunity organization that does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, marital status, familial status, national origin, age, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) values a diverse workforce and seeks ways to promote equity and inclusion within the organization. PP&R encourages candidates with knowledge, ability and experience working with a broad range of individuals and diverse communities. Although not required, PP&R encourages candidates that can fluently speak another language to include that information in your resume.
Our staff love what they do and are passionate about connecting people with Mount St. Helens. We are a small and growing organization, seasonal opportunities can turn into long term positions and long term positions are evolving rapidly. We have offices in Vancouver and Chelatchie Prairie (Amboy) and work throughout the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Our work is exciting, challenging and rewarding. Our staff, volunteers and interns get to spend their time on one of the most amazing places on earth. We value creativity, open communication and flexibility.
At Steve & Kate’s, we believe that when you trust kids, they develop the confidence to trust themselves, and learn to use their own judgment. So we created a summer camp that puts kids in charge. So whether your child is a natural-born storyteller with a love for animation, or a budding chef, or a hacker-in-training, or a dance machine, they can dive into their passions in a world free from adult judgments and expectations.
Steve & Kate’s exists because we believe that kids can only reach their potential if we get out of their way. We think that schedules, curricula, and standardized tests get in the way of children’s natural creativity, so we trust kids with the freedom to make their own choices, learn from their mistakes, and come up with ideas that we never could have imagined.
The same thing goes for how we hire people. We think that job titles and job descriptions are narrow and pointless; all they do is try to tell you that there’s only one way to do your job. Instead, we just hire amazing people and trust them with the freedom to tackle challenges however they see fit, and they come up with ideas we never could have imagined.

Exploring the roots of food and environmental stewardship
Zenger Farm's experiential and science-based programs teach youth and adults the importance of food, farming, wetland conservation and environmental stewardship in healthy urban communities. Participants learn that healthy food comes from healthy soil, which can be anywhere, even in the city. Zenger Farm provides opportunities for community members to get their hands dirty and learn where their food comes from.
Do you appreciate both nature and Joss Whedon? Is MacGyver a personal and professional hero of yours? Then Trackers Earth wants you for our supremely geektastic outdoor camps. You can teach in our Rangers Guild (wilderness survival), Wilders Guild (homesteading), Mariners Guild (fishing) or our Artisans Guild (live action role-playing camp). Take care though. Trackers is not for everyone. Our outdoor education staff most often says we're the family they've been looking for all their life. Yet on rare occasion they run away from us... screaming in terror. We immerse kids in the natural world by teaching them how to live through the zombie apocalypse. We come in costume with foam swords and speak in old English accents in our Realms of Cascadia. On occasion we pit students against one another in our Thunderdome. Did we mention we also make bows, kayak, blacksmith, cook all our meals over a wood fired kitchen and watch Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog in costume during staff training? Most importantly, we train real skills where kids carve with knives, loose arrows, make fire and flies. Yet this is not Lord of the Flies camp (actually it's more Lord of the Rings camp). Our safety and quality standards are intense and often overwhelming to folks new to our programs. We push the envelope on how much we do at camp and how compelling make it. So check us out and see if we are good fit.
Camps in Portland, Eugene and the Bay Area. Winter Break, Spring Break and Summer Camp options. We begin hiring for summer camp the previous September.
