California's North Coast is a land rich in natural and cultural history, biological diversity and distinctive geology. Learn how to educate students about the Redwood Grove's complex web of life while seeing a wide variety of flora and fauna. This program introduces students to those who work in State Parks and provides an opportunity for students to learn about the flora and fauna in the redwood forest from the soil to the canopy. Introducing the children to their local redwood park as first graders, then building on their knowledge year after year, is a wonderful opportunity to instill in them knowledge and a sense of stewardship for their local redwood park. They will also be exposed to career choices that might impress upon them that there are opportunities to work in the outdoors as environmental educators, environmental scientists, or State Parks personnel.
Potential docents are required to attend one of the three General Orientation Sessions, an Armstrong Tour Guide Orientation, as well as, seminars that pertain to the natural and cultural history of Armstrong Redwoods SNR and Austin Creek SRA.
