Lake Solano Park and Putah Creek Council are seeking nature lovers and local history enthusiasts to help lead public tours at Lake Solano throughout the summer and fall as part of the Lake Solano Docent program!
All are invited to attend an informational session on Saturday, June 28, 10 am – 12 noon at the Lake Solano Nature Center, 8685 Pleasants Valley Road in Winters.
The morning event will include a walking tour to learn of Lake Solano’s history, ecology and recreation opportunities, a discussion of tips and tricks for being a successful interpretive guide, and an overview of the Lake Solano Docent program.
What's a Docent?
Docents are volunteers who donate their time and skills toward improving visitors' experience and enjoyment of Lake Solano Park by conducting tours, leading guided walks, or otherwise helping the public understand the park's natural resources and recreation opportunities. Docents assist in interpreting, restoring, and preserving park natural and cultural history by assisting rangers with interpretive hikes and working with rangers on trail and native flora restoration projects.
Training is provided; docents should be eager to learn and eager to share their knowledge. Docents commit to 12 hours a year at the park and must abide by relevant Solano County rules and regulations.
Although we are seeking volunteers to help lead future tours, no commitment is necessary to attend this informational session. Please register for this for this free event by clicking here, or call the Putah Creek Council office at 530-795-3006.
