Docent Training Sessions are About to Start

January, 2015

We hope you will join our docent training program for school tours. The experience of working with young, eager students is very rewarding. We have a small (HINT: We could use more!) but wonderful and welcoming group of docents who lead students on tours from 10 am -12 noon on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings, from October through May.

If you are a new docent, you will probably start with pre-school and kindergarten youngsters. There are a few other concerns, such as the need to be at least 21 years old, fingerprinted and approved by the Marsh Manager.

Read Position Description.

Important classes for docent training are as follows. Times and dates could change so if you are interested, please contact the front desk at (310) 782-3989 to sign up and to confirm the date, time, etc.. If you can’t attend all classes, make-up material usually can be provided.

DOCENT TRAINING SCHEDULE - January 20 - February 19 at 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 Noon

IMPORTANT: All docents should join a least one morning bird walk at the marsh. Please check the schedule.
