Become an environmental steward and education volunteer at Lake Sammamish State Park.
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, in partnership with Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park, is offering docent training from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. April 8, 2017, at the park office, 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road.
Register online. The materials cost for the training is $20, or $10 for seniors and students.
Lake Sammamish State Park volunteer docents assist park rangers with a variety of programs, including nature hikes, educational crafting activities, formal school programs and drop-in educational stations. The training culminates with participants leading short activities during the park's Earth Day Celebration on April 22.
Park staff will introduce trainees to environmental education, curriculum, methods and techniques. Participants who successfully complete the training will receive a docent certification and be eligible to lead programs at the park.
Following training, volunteers will be required to give back 10 hours of service to the park.
