Panhandle Butterfly House offers annual docent training
The Panhandle Butterfly House is seeking seasonal volunteers to serve as docents Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, May through August. Docents greet walk-in visitors when the house is open to the public and work in teams, educating visitors on the biology and habitat of butterflies and their importance in our ecosystem. New volunteers are paired with seasoned docents to learn the ropes.

Training and orientation will be held in the Navarre Visitor Center conference room, 8543 Navarre Parkway in Navarre. Contact for details and registration. Two options for docent orientation and training are:
  • Friday, April 6, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
  • Monday, April 23, 9 a.m.  - 1p.m.
The Panhandle Butterfly House is a nonprofit educational facility that brings visitors in close contact with live Florida native butterflies in gardens that support them. Dedicated to educating visitors on butterflies and the importance of protecting our pollinators, the Panhandle Butterfly House is located in Navarre Park on Santa Rosa Sound at the foot of the Navarre Bridge.
