Do you enjoy working with the public? Meeting new people? Sharing your love of John Muir with visitors from far and wide?

Our Historic Home Docents are a team of dedicated volunteers who share knowledge of the "Father of the National Park Service" with the thousands of visitors who visit the park every year.

In official terms, Docents represent the National Park Service (NPS) to the public by preserving and interpreting the site and John Muir’s conservation legacy and home life in Martinez. They welcome visitors to the historic home and guide them as they learn more about the great conservationist.

Docents are also encouraged to develop and present public tours of the John Muir home.

Minimum one year commitment with 8 hours per month. All docents must complete three 4-hour training modules led by NPS staff prior to commencement of docent responsibilities. Scheduling is flexible. Docents have the option to lead tours and/or staff historic home and attend special events. The park is open Wed-Sun from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
