UC Botanical Garden Docent Training 2013-2014
Become a Garden Docent.
Do you enjoy working with people of all ages?
Do you have a love of plants and nature you’d like to share with others?
You can put those assets to work for the UC Botanical Garden by becoming a Docent. We educate thousands of school children and adults each year about plants and the natural environment. Our docents create memorable and exciting learning experiences for small groups of school children, university students, and the general public.
Training is provided by the Garden’s expert horticultural staff, experienced docents, and by plant specialists from UC Berkeley and the community. Upon successful completion of the training program and requirements, the commitment for leading tours is a minimum of two tours per month for at least two years post graduation.
Weekly sessions from August 26, 2013 through March 31, 2014
Mondays 1 – 4 pm, except holidays
Those with American Sign Language skills encouraged to apply, specific scholarships available.
