Docent guides lead scheduled groups on Garden tours showcasing plant collections, conservation work and current exhibitions. Tours are split into groups of 8-12 people, with each docent leading a group around the Garden for about an hour.
Docents must be Garden members, commit to attending all seven training classes, submit to a background check, pay a one-time $20 training fee and lead a minimum of two tours a month during peak seasons. Docents are also invited to monthly lunch meetings for Garden updates and program information.
Docent Training for 2013 is currently in session. The next session is not scheduled at this time.
