Trees Atlanta would love to train you to become a Docent for the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum Walking Tours!

Docents are volunteers who are passionate and specially trained to guide tours or lead projects within the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum. They introduce visitors to all facets of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, including the origins, beauty, and importance of native plants, as well as cultural and historical collections unique to the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum. Docents interact directly with the general public about the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum.

To become a Docent, applicants should:
Attend all training sessions
Commit to leading two tours or projects per month
Have some prior level of horticulture knowledge (preferred)

Training includes personal instruction from area experts on horticulture collections of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, history and design of the Atlanta BeltLine, and much more!
