2018 Docent Training
April 8, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pmFree
Join Sanctuary Forest on Sunday, April 8th for the 2018 Docent Training!
This free training will prepare volunteers to represent Sanctuary Forest and help guide one (or more!) of 12 hikes offered this summer. Hikes vary from easy to difficult with a wide range of topics, including
- Two kid-focused hikes
- Native plants
- Medicinal and edible plants
- Native culture
- Forestry and restoration
- Nurturing biodiversity
- Regenerative farming techniques
- The Lost Coast
- Old-growth redwoods, and more!
Over the course of 4.5 hours, participants will learn basic first aid, learn how to lead the opening and closing circles, assist hike leaders, keep track of hikers, et cetera. There are two or more docents on all hikes and responsibilities are shared. No previous experience is necessary and speaking in front of the group is not necessarily required. All are welcome!
