Become a docent at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden

This is from the City of Shoreline's website:

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is set in a wooded, park-like atmosphere in Shoreline, Washington, and is dedicated to the educational, cultural, and aesthetic enrichment of the community. The 4-acre garden was assembled by Mareen and Art Kruckeberg and is rich in native plants of the Pacific Northwest and unusual species from other lands. It is maintained by the love and care of Art, staff, and friends who regularly volunteer at the Garden.

The Docent Training Program is a great opportunity to become more knowledgeable about the Garden and plants in general. The program is four sessions from 11am to 2pm beginning Sunday, March 16 and continuing through April 13 (no class March 23 Easter weekend). Docents receive hands-on training and detailed information about plants and the history of the Garden. Dr. Kruckeberg often participates in the training. There is no cost, but docents share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the Garden by helping guide tours.

Applications must be received by Friday, March 7th, 2008.
