Interpretive Docents are volunteer teachers who help us provide group learning experiences in program demonstrations and school tours for children ranging from Preschool through 6th Grade. We will train you to present hands-on/minds-on school programs focused on waste reduction, energy conservation, watershed protection and water efficiency. Help empower new generations of school children to become “Planet Protectors” and enact important conservation principles.
