Description

A docent is a person who acts as a guide and teacher to zoo visitors to enhance their experience. Docents will use interpretive storytelling to make meaningful connections between visitors and with the conservation stories of the animals in our care.

Our docent program is for anyone 18+ that has an interest in educating zoo visitors. It is housed in our Conservation Education Department. Docents go through an in-depth training before leading any programs. They are expected to participate in regular training sessions to receive updated conservation messaging and animal information; as well as shadowing programs to better understand how our educational programming works.
