News from Duke Gardens - Docents needed

the Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden will become a reality this year. Construction is well underway. This new garden will expand program opportunities for all ages. In addition to trained program guides, this garden will also utilize volunteers as greeters (Ambassadors) to assist daily visitors. We are excited to discover interested volunteers who are currently in the program as well as expand the volunteer corps to meet these needs. Dates are set for the 2012 Docent Training.  Veteran docents will note a format change in the training schedule this year. The dates are as follows:

February 21; 9-12 (History of Duke Gardens. This session is required for all docents)

February 23; 9-12 (Children’s docents only)

February 28; 9-12 (Adult docent session, Children’s docents are encouraged to attend)

March 1; 9-12 (Children’s docents only)

Following this experiential formal training, there will be additional dates scheduled with each curator to tour/train in their specific area of Duke Gardens
