The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us run our River Field Trip Education Programs. If you’re interested in bringing youth together with nature by becoming an Education Docent, join us at this workshop to learn more!
This training introduces Education Docents to the various educational programs offered by the River Parkway Trust and prepares them to lead field trips at the River Center, Lost Lake Park and Scout Island. Field trips are typically 1st-4th grades, and take place from 9 am- 1 pm on weekdays.
Topics will include:
- Program orientation
- Leading a field trip and group management
- Demonstrations of field trip activity kits
- How to set up a field trip (demonstrated at Lost Lake Park)
- Leading a nature walk (demonstrated at Lost Lake Park)
The majority of the day will be spent at the River Center (11605 Old Friant Rd, Fresno). For on-site demonstrations, we will carpool to Lost Lake Park. Please dress appropriately and be prepared to spend a significant amount of time outside, possibly walking on uneven terrain.
Snacks or a light lunch will be provided for participants.
