The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Become an Education Center Host Docent for Friends of Edgewood
Interact with Visitors
Education Center volunteers engage guests in a way that maximizes the visitors’ enjoyment and understanding of the Center, its exhibits, and Edgewood Natural Preserve. Volunteers new to Edgewood participate with the support of docents who are familiar with Edgewood and its natural history.
Each volunteer staffs the Center for 3.5 hours at least once per month, or as much as once per week , throughout the year. We make it easy for you to set up your commitments ahead of time, so you can participate on dates that work with your personal schedule.
New volunteers learn on the job. Each new volunteer is paired with a host who is already familiar with the Education Center and Edgewood Natural Preserve. Volunteers also have access to supportive written and video information from which they can learn about the Ed Center, its exhibits, and enhancing their communication with guests.
