Stewardship Team Leaders
This special team helps us run all hands-on stewardship events. They get a full day of naturalist training (generally in October), get a behind-the-scenes look at how restoration planning happens, and are THE heart and soul of Putah Creek Council. If you're interested in applying to the Stewardship Team, contact Brian Keeley (email@example.com). Read more about the Stewardship Team.
This energetic group of volunteers helps us lead environmental education field trips for local elementary- and middle-school students. They go through a half day of training covering general background information, and receive specialized training for each type of field trip we lead. Education Team members help make a difference in students' lives by guiding them in nature explorations, scientific inquiry, and forming a deeper connection with Putah Creek. If you're interested in applying to join the Education Team, contact Nina L. (firstname.lastname@example.org). Read more about the Education Team.
The volunteer Docent teams at Lake Solano Park (Winters) and South Fork Preserve (Davis) lead public programs and help park visitors learn about the magic of Putah Creek. After completing training, the Docent teams participate in interpretive hikes, canoe tours, campfire programs, and other park projects. Use the links above to learn more about the Docent Programs at each site. If you are interested in becoming a docent for Putah Creek Council, contact Nina L, (email@example.com) or Alli Permann (firstname.lastname@example.org).
