Do Nature and History walks inspire you?
Would you like to share your joy with school children visiting the LA Arboretum?
Consider becoming a School Tours Docent Guide at the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden!
Our School Tour Docent Guides are the stewards of our gardens for thousands of student visitors each year. Their tours inspire deep curiosity and a love of nature and local history.
We offer unique school walking tours in both botany and history for grades 3rd through 6th. Our "Plants of our World" tour involves exploring the grounds to see examples of plants from different environments while noting the structure, function, and adaptations of plants. Our "Early California History" tour involves exploring the historic areas on site to learn about the Tongva Native Americans, the Rancho Period, and the Baldwin Era.
For the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of the Arboretum and help students connect with nature and local history, ask about the once a year docent training starting October 16th.
