The subjects that will be covered include Birds, Endangered Species, Ecology, History and Restoration of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. The purpose of the Docent Class is to train individuals to lead tours and in turn teach others about the importance of wetlands and excite the public to become more active in their local community with environmental causes. The members of the public who attend tours are elementary, high school and college students; girl and boy scouts; community groups; visitors from the United States and other countries.

The cost of the class is the Amigos Membership plus $50.00 which includes a Docent Training Manual and a DocentPhoto Binder. The classes will take place at Bolsa Chica State Beach Visitor Center on Pacific Coast Highway between Warner Avenue and Seapoint Street. The entrance is across the street from the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve on the ocean side of the street.

Amigos de Bolsa Chica has a free Public Tour the first Saturday of each month starting at 9:00am at the south parking lot of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve on Pacifi c Coast Highway between Warner and Seapoint across the street from the entrance to the Bolsa Chica State Beach. You are encouraged to attend the tour for an overview of the classes.
