Docent Recruitment Open House & Breakfast

August 6 from 10:00 am 1:00 pm

Ages 21 and up with weekday availability

Calling all nature lovers! We are looking to grow our team of Arboretum Docents and would like to invite you to learn more at this informational breakfast. Docents are volunteers who are specially trained to engage visitors of all ages and backgrounds in active explorations of our trails and Discovery Room. We are currently recruiting individuals for our upcoming docent trainings to prepare for fall programs! Trainings are scheduled to take place in late August 2022, and we are seeking enthusiastic life-long learners for this opportunity.

Concerned that you know very little about natural history, native flora/fauna, or the Arboretum in general? Not to worry! Docent training is comprehensive and includes extensive content-based classes as well as training on effective touring techniques.

If you are interested in helping us teach our visitors about nature and all it has to offer, we encourage you to attend!

Registration encouraged, walk-in participants welcome.

This is an Open House event – feel free to come and go as you please. Breakfast treats will be buffet style. Formal discussion and Q&A scheduled for 11 am.
