2019 Docent Hike Program

Welcome to Truckee Donner Land Trust’s 2019 Volunteer Docent Hike Program.  Thank you for joining us and making it possible for the community to enjoy educational & recreational opportunities on our Properties. 

The docent-led hikes are an essential part of our mission.  You are providing additional access to our Properties, getting people out in nature, and spreading the word about the good work being done at the Land Trust.

You are Ambassadors for the Land Trust and you are an important connection to the public.  As we continue to raise awareness about the Land Trust, docents are often the first contact between the public and our organization.

This document plus your orientation will enable you to lead/co-lead events on our Properties in 2019. 

We want the docent program to give you an opportunity for enjoyment, enrichment and personal satisfaction, including gaining a better understanding of the land and the importance of conservation and land preservation.  It’s not a requirement for our docents to become donors to the Land Trust.  We encourage you to at least sign up for our newsletters to keep better informed. We hope that your volunteer experience with us is positive and enjoyable and we want your input!

Thanks for being part of our team!
