The Monmouth County Park System is looking for volunteers to become Docents/Receptionists in four County park locations.
The system is seeking people 21 and over who enjoy interacting with people. Docents welcome visitors and answer questions about facilities, exhibits, park history, on-site ecology, as well as promote upcoming park programs. Other responsibilities may include light upkeep of facilities and exhibits.
Once trained, docents may volunteer on weekends in half-day shifts at Huber Woods Environmental Center, Middletown; Bayshore Waterfront Park Activity Center, Port Monmouth; or the Manasquan Reservoir Environmental Center, Howell.
Docents at Deep Cut Gardens Horticultural Center, Middletown, may volunteer on weekends and weekdays in half-day shifts. Volunteers are asked to provide a minimum two shift commitment per month and to attend an additional training session presented by Park System staff.
Anyone interested can sign up for the Park System's training session on March 10 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Thompson Park Visitor Center, Newman Springs Road, Lincroft.
