Do you love kids, history and horses? The Folger Stable field trip introduces 3rd and 4th graders to life in the 1900s. We schedule one docent to support the Historical Society representative who will do all the set-up, teaching, guided tours, and introduction. Our docent helps the students participate in a series of hands-on activities. This position is ideal for people who are interested in local history and like leading children in hands on activities. Experience with horses is a plus. Docents who are comfortable with horses can add a segment introducing a mini horse to the kids. Docents volunteer one Wednesday or Friday per month 11:00am-1:00pm or 3 hours/month.
