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?
