Applications are now being accepted for the following volunteer opportunity at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is seeking volunteers to educate school children about our local ocean environment via docent-led school tours of their exhibit hall, aquarium, and outdoor classroom. Following 10 weeks of training, docents will choose one morning per week to provide tours during the school year. A desire to learn about the ocean, and an interest in children are the primary qualifications. Prior knowledge about the ocean is not required. The September 2009 training class is forming now. Class begins Monday, September 14. A fee of $30 covers training, a docent manual and textbook.
