2020 Docent Training

January 18, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

group of volunteer docents

Our projects and events would not happen without fantastic volunteer support. Let us help you find a way to invest your time in the Sacramento Valley Conservancy’s outings and hikes on our beautiful properties!

Join our amazing group of trained volunteers to help with our docent-led activities and service projects at Deer Creek Hills and Camp Pollock. No experience is necessary, just a desire to learn about the land and to share your knowledge with the public. We provide the training. Docents must be willing to commit to a minimum of 4 outings (1 training + 3 public activities) at 5 hours per event = 20 hours a season. Most outings take place on Saturday mornings.

We are always looking for volunteers to help lead or supplement the leader on our docent-led events:

  • Education tours featuring: birding, botany, history, geology, pollinators, and more!
  • Equestrian rides (must have your own horse)
  • Mountain bike rides (must have your own bike)
  • Fitness and health outings: trail running, yoga, music
  • Service Projects: gardening, invasive weed removal, renovation, repairs, facility maintenance, etc.
  • Community outreach and fundraising events

Have another skill or idea? Let us know!

Docent training sessions are held in January each year. Contact Carly Amatisto, SVC Program Coordinator at 916-612-3719 or email her at outreach@sacramentovalleyconservancy.org for more information.

New docents and those wanting a review will join from 10:00am – 12:00pm. Current/renewing docents will join from 12:00pm – 2:00pm. Snacks and coffee will be provided.
