      Since 1995, the Mono Lake Committee has operated the Outdoor Education Center (OEC) program, which connects youth from Los Angeles to the Mono Basin—the northernmost extent of the Los Angeles Aqueduct and a source of Los Angeles’ water. The OEC program combines watershed education, experiential education, muscle-powered recreation, and stewardship projects to build understanding and appreciation for Mono Lake and its connection to the Los Angeles watershed.

      As an Outdoor Education Instructor, you will work in the field about 75% of the time with another instructor and the Outdoor Education Center Manager, assisting with education program coordination and leadership for groups ranging in size between 10 and 20 participants.

      Groups participating in the OEC program include Los Angeles school and community groups with participants from teenagers to adults. Approximately 25 groups participate from May through October and are comprised of people from different parts of Los Angeles, of varying ages, ethnic backgrounds, education levels, and physical fitness. Many have never experienced a wild place beyond the city, and some groups have little or no science background. The OEC program adapts to meet the needs of all participants. There is a community atmosphere within this program that requires staff to serve in a myriad of roles—instructor, naturalist, janitor, trip leader, mentor, friend, counselor, supervisor, first-aid provider, diplomat, comedian, etc.

      The surrounding Eastern Sierra region is the outdoor classroom. Mono Lake and its surrounding 700 square miles of Sierra Nevada and western Great Basin provide endless opportunities for learning, rewarding experiences, and stewardship activities.
