VOLUNTEER

Volunteers and docents are vital to our mission and are active in every aspect of IslandWood—from gardening and landscaping to educational and community programs, administration, and special events. We hope you’ll join our intergenerational community of volunteers!

Docents are an essential extension of our education team, leading site tours and being ambassadors of our mission. Docents receive extensive training in Puget Sound natural and cultural history, as well as in IslandWood’s sustainable design, history, mission, and programs.

 

If you are interested in actively leading hikes and tours and would like to take part in our next docent training, email Tamar Kupiec at tamark@islandwood.org.
