Inspire future generations of environmental stewards as a Matthaei-Nichols docent. We are now accepting applications for the 2013 docent class. During the academic year, docents work in small teams to lead interpretive programs for school groups and also lead evening and weekend activities for scout, youth, and family events. Docents develop skills in interpretation and active learning while sharing enthusiasm & knowledge of the natural world with learners of all ages. The 2013 Docent classes will run for 8 weeks beginning Monday, January 28. The classes will be held on Mondays from 9 am–noon at Matthaei. Interview and pre-registration required.
