Do you love children, nature, and helping future generations enjoy and protect the environment? We need docents to help with kindergarten and first grade student field trips. Some docents lead students on a one mile hike following the Redwood Trail in Huddart Park in beautiful Woodside. During the hike, docents help children discover sticky monkey flowers, giant redwood trees, banana slugs, and turret spider nests among many other wonders. In addition, docents show students how to make clothing decals from the spores of Goldback Ferns and face paint with colors ground from local streambed rocks. Other docents lead hands-on activities with small groups of students learning about predators and prey, birds and nesting, painting leaf imprints, or making animal crowns. These positions are ideal for people who are interested in environmental education, hiking, and nature. Volunteers get to work hands on with children, and enjoy hiking in a beautiful location.

Docents volunteer one Tuesday or Thursday per month during the school year from 9:30am-12:30pm. No experience is necessary, training is provided.
