Docent Training Fall 2013: Time To Get Ready For the Kids!

By Cindy Hardin, Environmental Education

Summer continues to fly by, which means docent training will soon begin. Los Angeles Audubon is looking for volunteers that are interested in becoming docents for our two environmental education programs for schoolchildren. We host over 3500 students every year at the Ballona Wetlands and at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, and the core of the programs is our roster of valued and talented volunteers. No experience is necessary; just a love of the outdoors and a willingness to share your enthusiasm with children. Two separate training programs are offered, one for each site.

For the Ballona Wetlands:

Training begins on Tuesday, September 10th from 9am to noon and will continue every Tuesday morning for six sessions, through October 22nd. All meetings will take place at the Saltmarsh in Playa del Rey.

For Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area:

Training will commence on Friday, October 3rd from 9 am to noon and will continue every Friday for five sessions, through November 1st. All meetings will take place at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area in the Baldwin Hills.

Volunteers should be available on weekdays during the school year. We ask that you contribute two days a month of your time to educating and inspiring the environmental stewards of the future. This is fun and rewarding work, and a great chance to get outside with like-minded folk.
