This training workshop is for people who want to be tour docents at Armstrong Redwoods, including both new docents and people who would like a refresher. It will include both docent skill development (how to lead student and adult groups), the basic features that people should see when visiting Armstrong Redwoods, and materials to use when learning about Armstrong Redwoods and when leading groups. It will also include information about the effects of recent fires on Armstrong Redwoods and suggestions for incorporating climate change into your teaching. (This is an introductory workshop. A more advanced workshop titled Hike With Mike is offered periodically.)
