Description

Build Respect and Love for the Laguna de Santa Rosa: Volunteer to Teach Learning Laguna!

Docent Training Orientation

The Laguna Foundation’s flagship program, Learning Laguna, a two-part wetland education experience for 2nd-4th grade students, is celebrating 20 years of service to the schools. So far, more than 20,500 children have been given this special opportunity to explore and learn about their home environment. To keep up with the ever-growing demand for this popular program, we need your help. Make 2020 your year to become a Learning Laguna volunteer!

Teams of trained docents work together to visit classrooms throughout the Laguna Watershed using our specially designed, hands-on, engaging activities that teach to school curriculum standards. The following week the same team of docents lead "their" students on an experiential field trip to the Laguna where the learning comes alive.

During the docent training course participants will experience the joy of learning in a fun, supportive environment. We will teach you about the natural history of the Laguna, serve as mentors as you learn to lead the dynamic Learning Laguna activities, and take you out for vernal pool explorations and birding trips. After the training course you will teach and foster respect and love for the Laguna in every classroom you visit and every field trip you lead. The joy of sharing nature with children will expand your heart!

Training starts in March 2020. Visit this page of our website for the details.

This orientation event will include an overview of the Laguna de Santa Rosa, the work of the Laguna Foundation, plus a summary of the training program and the docent "job" along with an opportunity to experience some of the Learning Laguna activities with current Docents.

We invite you to deepen your Laguna sense of place and join us for the rewarding experience of being a Learning Laguna Docent!
