Docent Training Program of Spring 2019 now open for registration!



Are you passionate about gardens and plants? AUB Botanical Garden is launching its second Botanical Docent Training Program – in March!

What is a botanical docent? A botanical docent is a trained volunteer who guides visitors, contributes to the creation and planning of botanical-related activities, and/or helps to manage the garden. The program caters for plant enthusiasts, event planners, or artists inspired by nature. You will receive a certificate as an AUB Botanical Docent after you've completed the required classes and volunteered 20 hours as a docent. If you're interested, please check out the Docent Program Manual (link below). You will also find below a link to an online application form.

We will close registration as soon as we reach the maximum limit of 25 applicants, so apply as soon as you can. Keep in mind that there will be one session or botanical activity at different times on each day of the week starting on Monday, March 18th. The sessions are mandatory to attend, but as for the botanical activities, you are free to attend those that interest you.
