Docent guides lead scheduled groups on Garden tours showcasing plant collections, conservation work and current exhibitions. Tours are split into groups of 8-12 people, with each docent leading a group around the Garden for about an hour.
Docents must be Garden members, commit to attending all seven training classes, submit to a background check, pay a one-time $20 training fee and lead a minimum of two tours a month during peak seasons. Docents are also invited to monthly lunch meetings for Garden updates and program information.
The next Docent training session will take place in 2016. Attendance is required at six classes, and volunteers must commit to leading at least two tours a month during peak seasons. Register for more information.
