History Docents work with the general public and school groups to promote a greater understanding of the history, the cultural and the natural resources for the San Diego area.

Volunteers may lead tours, sharing the stories about wonderful historic places. Some docents help furnish the adobes, create public presentations, coordinate special events, work with school children, and building stewardship for future visitors.

Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve and Rancho Guajome Adobe are two locations that benefit from our docent program. Open space preserves can also benefit and can found throughout our county.

There will be continuing opportunities for advanced learning and special field trips. This is an opportunity to join an active group of historian and wildlife enthusiasts while being a part of an enjoyable, productive recreation experience in a beautiful setting. In addition to the above benefits, you will receive the satisfaction of making a meaningful contribution to your community.
