Become a Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Docent

Saturday, February 20, 2010

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is a four-acre public garden owned by the City of Shoreline. It is a unique collection of over 2,000 native and exotic plant species in a naturalistic, wooded setting. The Garden is operated by the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation (KBGF), a non-profit organization.

Thousands of visitors enjoy the Kruckeberg Garden each year, and KBGF relies on volunteer docents to guide tours and lead educational activities for these visitors.

 Each spring, our docent-training program prepares new docents to fill this role. Trainees learn about the Garden's history and plant collection in a series of hands-on classes. After completing the training, new docents are encouraged to co-lead tours with other docents until they feel comfortable. Tours vary in size, length, and topic, ensuring that there is a tour for all comfort and experience levels. The training focuses on leading tours, but docents may choose to work in other capacities such as leading family educational activities.

This spring's training will take place on March 14, 21, and 28 and April 11 and 18 from 11 am - 2 pm. For more information, contact our docent coordinator or 206-546-1281. Applicants must complete and return a Docent Training Application by March 7.
