Bouverie docent orientation, recruitment hike

Bouverie Audubon Preserve

Wednesday August 16th 2017 - 10:30am to

Open a child’s mind to the wonder of nature by becoming a docent at Audubon Canyon Ranch’s Bouverie Preserve in Glen Ellen.

Bouverie Preserve docents teach third and fourth graders about the natural history of the Sonoma Valley and inspire the next generation of nature enthusiasts while spending time in the great outdoors. Docents teach students about native plants, spider web-building habits, newt migration, native peoples and much more. The next Bouverie Preserve docent training will begin in September.

ACR’s rigorous training program gives docent volunteers a firm grounding in local natural history, and the ability to recognize and capitalize on teachable moments. Docents receive 22 weeks (120 hours) of core training in natural history, ecology and nature interpretation for children. Classes are taught by experts and run by experienced docents who know how to make learning fun.

If you’re interested in learning more, come to an orientation/recruitment hike on Aug. 16 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call ACR headquarters at 415-868-9244 to sign up.
