Do you love nature?

Share that joy with others as a Lake Solano Docent!

What's a Docent?
A docent is a trained guide who conducts tours, leads guided walks, or otherwise helps the public understand the park's resources and opportunities. Docents are volunteers who donate their time and skills toward improving visitors' experience and enjoyment of Lake Solano Park. 

Who we are
Lake Solano Docents are a dedicated group of volunteers who enrich the visitor experience at our local county park and help serve the mission of Solano County Parks. The Docent team assists the Lake Solano Rangers in interpreting, restoring and preserving the natural and cultural history of Lake Solano by leading interpretive hikes, and helping with trail and native flora restoration projects. Docents are responsible for inspiring visitors and helping the public learn about the diverse resources at Lake Solano Park in Winters, CA.

How you can join

Docents commit to 12 hours a year at the park and must abide by relevant Solano County rules and regulations. The Lake Solano Docent team recruits and trains new volunteer members each fall to share their love of natural and cultural history through guided tours, canoe trips, and other outreach activities. Docents should be eager to learn and eager to share their knowledge.  New docents must participate in training events.
