IMG_6138What does it take to be a Docent?

Out Volunteer Docents come from all backgrounds. You don’t have to be a fish scientist to talk about salmon! If you are interested in getting outside, facilitating awesome outdoor learning and fostering a love of conservation, restoration and healthy ecosystems in our youth, then YOU are ready to be a Volunteer Docent at Kennedy Creek.

What do Docents do?

Docents are integral to keeping the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail running. Our volunteers lead 1.5 hours tours to school groups where they answer questions about the salmon life cycle, habitat, and spawning.

How do I become a Docent?

If you would like to volunteer as a Docent this year, please contact Claire Williamson, KCST Coordinator at  (360) 412-0808 x 105 or by email at kennedycreek@spsseg.org to get on our docent email list.

Our Docent Training this year will be held at the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail on October 20, 2018 from 10:00 to 2:00.

At the training we will cover:

  • Volunteer registrations & background checks
  • The salmon life cycle
  • The history of KCST
  • Salmon anatomy
  • Healthy habitats and why they matter to salmon
  • Guiding like a pro
  • And more!

What should I bring to the Training?

  • Lunch
  • A camp chair
  • A pen or pencil in case you want to take notes
  • Your enthusiasm!!
