If you love sharing nature with others, you might be the perfect candidate for the Discovery Park docent class of 2009.
Docents (volunteer naturalists) participate in 12 weeks of training and commit to at least one year of volunteering. Responsibilities ranger from helping children catch a dragonfly larva for the first time to teaching the public about life in Puget Sound. Docents lead programs for school groups, teach interpretive programs on the weekends, and staff hands-on discovery stations in the busier areas of the park. Class of 2009 begins in February and applications are available now. For more information, contact Kit Benshoof at 206-386-4237.
