Spring 2017 Docent Training Class Begins March 1

The next Docent Class will be held in March and April of 2017 on 5 Wednesdays and 1 Tuesday, March 1 through April 5. If you have an interest in taking the Amigos Docent Training Class to learn more about the Bolsa Chica and to then share your understanding with others on tours and at presentations contact the Amigos at 714 840-1575 or info@amigosdebolsachica.org. The class runs for 6 weeks, one night a week from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

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 subjects that will be covered include Birds, Endangered Species, Ecology, History and Restoration of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.

The cost of the class is the Amigos Membership plus $50 which includes a Docent Training Manual and a Docent Photo 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. You are encouraged to attend Amigos' free Public Tour the first Saturday of each month starting at 9:00am for an overview of the subjects covered on the tours by the docents.
