If you enjoy the great outdoors and love to talk about it, you have what it takes to be a volunteer guide – or docent – at the Lick Creek Nature Center.
The Parks and Recreation Department is training a cadre of park lovers to be program leaders, tour guides and docents to enhance the overall guest experience by creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere. A free orientation will be Saturday, Aug. 18 from noon-3 p.m. at the Lick Creek Nature Center at 13600 Rock Prairie Road – and we’ll provide lunch.
Docents must be at least 18 years old and able to volunteer eight hours a semester.
The orientation will explore how a nature center operates, including environmental education, customer service, programming, exhibits and outdoor activities. Recreation Supervisor Virginia Godwin and the Lick Creek Nature Center staff will lead the session.
Regardless of your background, we’ll equip you with all you need. Take advantage of the opportunity to help provide quality outdoor science education to our community while sharing your knowledge and appreciation of Lick Creek Park.
To register, call 979-764-6216 or stop by the Lick Creek Nature Center.
