Want to spend some time enjoying the butterflies in our Butterfly House, while teaching others about these important animals? Butterfly House Docents help monitor the butterfly house, greet the public, provide casual interpretation, clarify rules and answer questions. Docents commit to volunteer approximately three hours per month or more if desired, during butterfly season (May through September). Docents staff the House on weekends from 10AM – 12:30PM or from 12:30 – 3PM. Weekday docents are also needed.
Docents must complete the Butterfly Docent training workshop, offered at the Environmental Nature Center or posses similar training or experience. Training includes an overview of frequently asked questions, a description of the host and nectar plants in the ENC’s butterfly house, and the butterflies likely to be found in the House over the coming season. Docents will view a 1-hour PPT presentation, and a 1-hour video on Exotic Milkweed (A. curassavica) and the Spread of Disease in Monarchs.
