TCC is looking for:
Talented educators with local authority to lead outdoor youth programming for weekend workshops. Seeking experienced educators in the following areas to lead these small group hands-on seminars on TCC grounds:
We are also seeking authorities on introductory First Aid, Topanga Creek Watershed, Fiber arts, creating natural dyes, painting and drawing, woodworking and sculpture.
Animal Tracking, Trailing
How do you know what animals live here? What evidence do you see and how can you tell what that animal might be? Looking for authorities to inform Topanga youth about the animals that live in the Santa Monica Mountains and their life cycles, food webs, and what they depend on to survive.
Geology and Anthropology
What can we learn about the past from the rocks of the present? Looking for authority to help develop this programming. Can also be done in tandem with another workshop, if desired.
Wilderness Survival, Navigation
What happens when you’re in the wilderness alone or you have lost your group? What are some of the best ways to make sure you find your way back? Learn how to use a compass and read a map (and draw your own!), which local plants are edible, and what native cultures did to survive in the harsh mountain terrain.
