San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center to hold Docent Open House

A Docent Open House will be held on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 3-5 p.m. at the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center. Enjoy refreshments and learn about the Conservancy’s education program. RSVP at

Fall training begins Oct. 2 and ends Nov. 27 (Tuesdays from 9 a.m. - noon, and two Saturday mornings). To help engage the public and to introduce the wonders of the Reserve to the community, the Conservancy offer hundreds of free educational programs annually to schools and the public. In order to do this, the Conservancy relies heavily on volunteers (docent-naturalists) to carry out the educational programs in the field. As the education program grows in popularity, the Conservancy needs to constantly seek and train new docents to lead groups on walks in the lagoon.

Apply by Sept. 21. For more information, visit; (760) 436-3944, ext. 701.
