Do you find it easy to talk to groups of people and do you love to learn about plants, history, and conservation?
Does seeing smiling faces and fielding questions seem like your idea of a fun activity? If you answered yes to either question you’ll make a great addition to Tyler’s Docent team.
If you love to teach, guide, and share stories, and if you like people and are happy speaking in public, you’ll probably make an ideal Docent.
We are particularly looking for volunteers to guide tours on Fridays and Saturdays. When you sign up as a docent you’ll go through an extensive training and orientation period with the result being that you’ll become an expert in the history and layout of Tyler.
To succeed in this role you’ll need to be able to walk 2 miles without difficulty and you must be comfortable working outdoors.
To find out more about the Docent Program, contact Julia.
When: Fridays and Saturdays from April until the end of October, morning and afternoon shifts, with occasional group tours during the rest of the week.
