The River Parkway Trust is recruiting for enthusiastic volunteers to help run the River Field Trip Education Programs this school year. If you are interested in connecting local school aged children to the outdoors by becoming an Education Docent, join us for this training to learn more about the upcoming field trip programs!
In this training you will learn about the various educational programs offered by the River Parkway Trust and become prepared to lead field trips at the River Center and Lost Lake Park. Field trips typically serve 1st through 5th-grade students, and take place from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on weekdays.
Topics will include:
- Brief program overview and orientation
- Leading a field trip and group management
- Demonstrations of field trip activities
- How to set up a field trip
- Leading a nature walk
Volunteers that participate in this training will be scheduled to shadow an experienced Education Docent or River Parkway Trust staff.
