I got the following via e-mail today. It sounds like a fun volunteer opportunity.
The field of dreams needs you
Volunteers have never been more in demand at the Lab. The functional and beautiful Center for Marine Studies affirms the line from the movie, “If you build it, they will come.” A great number of teachers and home schoolers are requesting a variety of educational assistance in the marine sciences.
Docents are needed to handle the doubling of programs at the pre-school and elementary levels that are scheduled to begin. In the fall, middle school and high school students will be added to the offerings. Docents need no prior science training and come from all walks of life. They receive an orientation from Whitney faculty and on-the-job training with experienced docents. If you would like to be a docent or serve in a different volunteer capacity at the Center, administrative or other, call Education Coordinator Jessica Roberts-Misterly at 461-4014 or email jessica(at)whitney.ufl.edu.
