What is a WMG Docent?

Docents are the face of Watershed Management Group, both out in the community and at our urban demo site - the Living Lab & Learning Center. They fill a variety of vital roles through out the organization that support our mission to develop community-based solutions to ensure the long-term prosperity of people and health of the environment. If you are passionate about connecting people with nature, stewarding our rivers and the Sonoran Desert, and engaging with our diverse community on water conservation and environmental justice issues, consider being a WMG docent! 

Duties and Responsibilities

At the end of the docent training program, we work with each docent to structure regular volunteer activities that fit their skill set and interests. These activities can include, but are not limited to: giving tours of our public demonstration site, tabling at outreach events, assisting with family and neighborhood educational events, data collection and monitoring, rain garden care, Spanish translation, Latinx community engagement, and assisting visitors at our Welcome Center.

Qualifications

We are seeking individuals with a shared passion for our mission - experience in the water conservation field is not necessary! Being a WMG docent is generally not conducive for people who work more than part-time or have other responsibilities that equate to full-time.
