The Southern California Mountains Foundation (SCMF) is seeking highly motivated and energetic people to assist with interpretive and education programs at the Big Bear Discovery Center and throughout the San Bernardino National Forest. These jobs are being offered through SCMF’s Urban Conservation Corps (UCC) which offers young men and women (18-25 year olds) the chance to serve in the local mountains and work in environmental conservation settings that increase their job readiness. Current employment opportunities include a Customer Service Representative, Forest Resource Monitor, Discovery Center Recycling Coordinator and Custodian, and multiple Corpsmember positions to lead nature walks and eco-tours. We are also recruiting individuals’ ages 18-25 years old to join our Americorps program, based out of San Bernardino, to perform forest restoration work.
The Southern California Mountains Foundation (1) supports youth development through conservation initiatives integrating environmental education, training and hands-on service projects; (2) protects our natural resources through adult and family-led programming; and (3) provides interpretive services that focus on outdoor recreation, responsible use, and stewardship of our natural environment.
Opened in 1998, the Big Bear Discovery Center is the largest visitor center in the Big Bear Valley with more than 190,000 yearly visitors that enjoy exhibits, weekly programs, eco-tours, and special events like outdoor concerts, theater productions, and nighttime interpretive programs in the Big Bear Discovery Center Amphitheater. Our goal is to ensure visits here are enjoyable and heightens awareness to help visitors become more knowledgeable and responsible caretakers of the San Bernardino National Forest.
