Seasonal Site Host
Mitchell Lake Audubon Center is a 1,200-acre wildlife refuge, located in south San Antonio, TX. The property is owned by the local water utility, San Antonio Water System (SAWS), and managed by the National Audubon Society. The historic Leeper House serves as its visitor center, with a small education pavilion on property. The site includes 7.5 miles of both walking and/or driving trails.
The center and the surrounding grounds are open year-round and attracts visitors from all over the world. Being a part of the Audubon team means making a difference for conservation. The Seasonal Site 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. Seasonal Site Hosts support Mitchell Lake Audubon Center by ensuring all visitors have left the property at the close of business hours, and securing the gates and parking lot.
Seasonal Site Hosts can expect to work an average of 5-10 hours per scheduled week. When not working, opportunities for Seasonal Site Hosts to volunteer in public education, resource management, visitor services, and maintenance of gardens and trails is encouraged.
Seasonal Site Host positions are filled by RV campers and are required to live on-site in their personal RV on one of Audubon’s two RV pads. RV sites are equipped with water, sewer, and electricity hook-ups. Site Hosts share closing responsibilities with staff as needed.
