Volunteer Garden Docents Opportunities Available at Rancho Los Cerritos
2015-02-13 · By Editor
Rancho Los Cerritos is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to join our team of Garden Docents. “We share the history and the stories of the plants in our gardens,” explained staff horticulturist Marie Barnidge-McIntyre, “so that visitors develop a deeper understanding of the site, and the people who lived here.”
Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site volunteers help to sustain, preserve and share the precious historic and cultural landmark. The property, home to a 171 year old two story Monterey-style adobe, is maintained by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation, a not-for-profit entity that relies significantly upon volunteers to connect the site with the community, and with visitors from around the world.
Garden Docent training begins on Friday, February 20th from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and continues on Friday mornings through March 20th. Individuals interested in volunteering should RSVP to 562-206-2040, or email the Rancho’s volunteer coordinator, Jan Shafer, at JanS@rancholoscerritos.org.
