Check your mailbox, our 25th Anniversary Annual Report is on it's way. It's our way of asking are our programs meaningful? Is our organization strong?

Do you know a great educator who enjoys nature and introducing children to the outdoors? Discovery Southeast is hiring an outdoor educator to lead hands-on nature education classes for elementary and middle school children. The position is flexible, and the organization is a great one to work for (OK, we might be biased). This is an opportunity to lead fun, meaningful, formative programs, and work alongside outstanding naturalists and educators.
All the details are in our position announcement at discoverysoutheast.org/work.
Discovery Southeast had a great time whale watching with Gastineau Guiding. Check it out on our YouTube channel, or visit our Facebook page for the video as well as pictures and updates from the summer.
And while you're at it, check out Discovery Southeast's 25th Anniversary video! It's a wonderful 8 minute short movie that will leave you reminded of why you love Discovery Southeast, and why it's so important to introduce children to the outdoors.

KTOO's Lisa Phu followed up with a phenomenal piece after she tagged along on one of Steve's classes. Check it out here!
