Join a Docent Team!

This image shows a Lake Solano Docent leading a tour.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 many programs - tours, public events, pop-up "nature centers," and more - to help visitors learn more about the treasure that is Putah Creek. 

Both programs will have a 2019 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. Information sessions will cover content for both sites and are scheduled for the following dates & times:

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.

South Fork Preserve: Docents at this site lead nature walks, pop-up nature centers, citizen science outings, and other public events.
