Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary has two vacancies. We are looking for Campus Hosts for the upcoming fall/winter season.
The campus host position is a part-time, seasonal position assisting with essential end-of-day and after-hours functions related to guest safety and facility support and security. Campus hosts support the Blair Nature Center by ensuring that all visitors have made it off the boardwalk at the close of business hours, and securing the gates and parking lot.
Campus hosts support the Facilities Supervisor by serving as on-call resources on weekends and after hours for alarms or unexpected needs that arise from interns or guests such as visiting scientists. Campus hosts share on-call and closing responsibilities in shifts with others. Campus hosts can expect to work an average of two hours per scheduled day. When not working, opportunities abound for campus hosts interested in volunteering in public education, resource management, maintenance, and in our Blair Center.
Campus hosts are required to live on-site in their personal Recreational Vehicle (RV) on one of Audubon’s two RV pads. RV sites are equipped with water, sewer, and electricity hook-ups as well as a private outdoor patio and grill. Corkscrew is a remote Sanctuary and is known as a dark sky site. The RV pads are nestled in the pine flatwoods near the housing area.
The new campus host(s) should be able to start as early as July 1. This job posting will close as soon as the positions are filled.
