Tower Hill Botanic Garden is opening its 2018 Docent Training Program on February 7 th.

All you need to become a docent is an enthusiasm for plants and a love of Tower Hill! We will supply all of the training information and sample tours. You may shadow other docents until you feel ready to give your own tour.

We have added some specialty training sessions throughout the year in addition to the general docent training. This will be an exciting learning experience for anyone interested in giving Guided Garden Tours to visiting adult and/or youth groups.

You must commit to attending all 4 of the General Docent Tour Training Sessions 2/7, 2/14, 3/14 & 3/21 in order to become a docent. The Specialty tours are optional, however we hope you will attend those as well.

Ideal applicants will have prior formal or informal educational experience, a love of plants and nature.

Please contact Suzanne Hauerstein, Volunteer & Booked Tour Coordinator for more information.
