Summer Wildlife Docent Training on June 8, 2002
Contact: Steve Anastasia, 415-464-5147
Join Point Reyes National Seashore and other wildlife enthusiasts in protecting tule elk and snowy plovers as part of our summer Wildlife Docent Program.
The Tule Elk of Point Reyes
During the breeding season or "rut," among the eerie bugling and the sound of clashing antlers at Tomales Point, docents of many different ages and backgrounds are helping to protect these phenomenal animals by educating visitors and providing data on disturbance, population size and behavior.
Snowy Plovers Struggling for Survival
Your time and commitment can help to ensure the protection of tule elk and snowy plovers while providing rewarding experiences for visitors. Applicants should enjoy learning about natural history and sharing this knowledge with others. Through contact with the public, docents will play an important role in promoting awareness and protection of wildlife. Docents must commit to working 2 weekend and holiday days each month and attend a one-day training at Point Reyes National Seashore on the 8th of June.
The training will be held at Point Reyes National Seashore on June 08, 2002 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
For inquiries, please call Steve Anastasia at 415-464-5147.
