How Do You Look in Yellow?

By Ann Geiger, Education Director

Who are those people in yellow? They are Sacramento Zoo volunteer educators and are an important part of the Zoo experience!

The Sacramento Zoo is taking applications for the 2011 Docent Training class until January 9, 2011. Zoo Docents are volunteer educators who have a love for wildlife and enjoy people. Docents conduct tours and station talks at the Zoo and with additional training, docents can also participate in live animal presentations, both on and off-site.

An orientation meeting will be held on January 8, 2011 and the training class will begin on January 15th. The mini-course in Zoology runs every Saturday through mid-March. Visit the Docent webpage for more information or email the Education Department or call (916) 808-5889 for an application.

  1. I'm so excited to be starting the Docent Training class in January. The Sacramento Zoo is a wonderful place that we have enjoyed, and I can't wait to learn how to enhance others visitors zoo experience.
