Event Description

Share your love of nature with children.

Prospective volunteers are invited to a special reception to highlight Audubon Canyon Ranch’s (ACR) 22-week Elementary School Nature Education Program at its Martin Griffin Preserve. The reception will provide an opportunity to learn about the docent training program, and a chance to meet with ACR biologists and active docents.

Each year, the education programs of ACR, provide over 6,000 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students the opportunity to experience nature-based educational experiences at no cost to the schools. Participants in the Docent Training learn about local birds, wildflowers, mammals, amphibians, spore and seed producing plants, regional plant communities and nature education techniques. The Docents trained in this program visit elementary classrooms and lead small groups of students on trails at the preserve.

Training begins in September 2012 and meets every Wednesday through February 27.
