Do you enjoy nature and being outdoors? Do you want to share knowledge with others and promote conservation and stewardship? This is your opportunity to join our team of dedicated docent volunteers who:
- interact with visitors from around the world,
- help visitors spot whales and other marine wildlife from the viewing deck,
- and operate the park store and visitor center.
Spring training is held three consecutive Saturdays, beginning early April. Docents are required to work at least one 7-hour shift (9:30am–4:30pm) each month. The commitment is for a minimum of one year. The minimum age requirement is 18 years old.
