Docent Recruitment Open House & Breakfast

August 21 from 10:00 am 11:30 am

Registration encouraged; walk-in participants welcome
Ages 21+

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! In-person training is scheduled to take place Wednesday, September 4, 2024, and we are seeking enthusiastic life-long learners for this opportunity.

Concerned that you know very little about natural history, native flora and 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!

The Nature Center Building will be closed Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day. The trails, Nature Playscape, and outdoor restrooms will remain open.
