Become a Docent!

This image shows a Lake Solano Docent leading visitors in a discussion.Do you love Putah Creek? Nature? Helping people learn about the outdoors?

Share that passion with others as a volunteer Docent! Putah Creek Council is operating two Docent Programs this fall: one at Lake Solano Park in Winters, and the other at the South Fork Preserve in Davis. Both programs train members of the public in local ecology, natural resource interpretation, and familiarize them with Putah Creek history and management. These volunteer docents lead tours, public events, and operate pop-up "nature centers" to help visitors learn more about the treasure that is Putah Creek. 

Both programs will have a Fall 2018 training series to bring new docents on board. Before committing to a full training, we ask that interested persons attend an information session about the program(s) that they are interested in. 

Lake Solano Park: Docents at this site lead an array of events, ranging from canoe tours and campfire programs to nature walks and portable nature centers. Information sessions are offered at the Lake Solano Park Nature Center (8685 Pleasants Valley Road, Winters) on the following dates:
