San Antonio College, Santiago Oaks Regional Park, Rancho Soñado, and Irvine Regional Park). Students will study tidepools, chaparrals, riparian (stream), and estuary ecosystems. Information on Native American lifestyles and geology are also integrated into the program. Our Field Naturalists usually have a work schedule of 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Full-time (M-F) and part-time (T, TH or M,W,F) positions available; additional weekend shifts may be available.
