BBG docents provide an invaluable service to The Gardens. They provide BBG visitors from around the city, the state, the region, the nation, even at times the world, with their first impression of BBG as they take these guests on walking tours of The Gardens. Docents may choose to work with children as Education Docents, providing curriculum based field trips to elementary aged school children, or as Garden Docents, providing tours of the gardens themselves to visiting adult groups. Or they may participate in both aspects of the Docent program.
