Docent Training – Become an Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum Docent
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. This education program is supported by Kaiser Permanente.
To become a Docent, applicants should:
- Be a Trees Atlanta member
- 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!
To participate in the training program, please fill out the application, or contact Kate Baltzell to answer any questions you may have.
Docent training takes place at:
Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center
