Docent Training Begins October 2013.
We accept applications for Fall Docent Training all year long. Have some free time on your hands? Are the kids off to school? Perhaps the volunteer program at San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy will open new doors of discovery.
Through Docent Training, you'll learn from experts about the history, flora, and fauna of San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve, and share your passion with others for protecting wetlands.
Becoming a Docent-Naturalist for the Conservancy is a rewarding experience. The eight-week training covers the ecology and history of San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve. Docent training also offers practical tips in interpretive techniques and how to lead groups of students and adults.
After completion, you will join a dedicated group of Conservancy volunteers who help foster appreciation of the lagoon’s diverse and rare habitats. Since the founding of San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy in 1987, docents have interpreted the wonders of the lagoon for thousands of visitors from around the world.
