Laguna Guides

Help our community deepen its enthusiasm, appreciation and knowledge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa! Laguna Guides are trained volunteers who share their knowledge about the Laguna during public education events at the Laguna Environmental Center and on Laguna trails throughout the watershed.

Date: Laguna Guides volunteer year-round, primarily on evenings and weekends.
Time: Varies depending on event.
Location: Primarily at the Laguna Environmental Center but also on the trails.
Experience & Qualifications: A 30-hour training course is offered every other year in the spring, usually in March.

The Laguna Guides training program prepares volunteers to lead walks, activities and tours on Laguna trails and at the Laguna Environmental Center. Guides also host events at the Center, and help manage Heron Hall during public education talks, classes and workshops. Training classes are focused on the natural environment and cultural history of the Laguna, and how to create dynamic visitor experiences. Trainees receive a binder with reading and reference material that is closely tied with the theme of each classroom session. The training course fee is $90. Partial scholarships are available.

Upon completion of the training course, a minimum commitment of 5 volunteer hours each month is requested. Guides are part of the Laguna Education Programs Volunteer Team which includes fun on-going opportunities for continuing education, special outings and social events with fellow education programs volunteers.
