Are you interested in volunteering for the Point Reyes National Seashore Association? Do you want to take classes for free?

The Point Reyes National Seashore Association will be hosting a facilitator training for all those interested in volunteering in the future. This is a one day training on how to become one of our many great volunteers who assist the various Field Institute classes held all year round. This training is for those interested in becoming facilitators and for current facilitators, as many regulations and procedures have changed. The day will include guidelines on communication protocols, facility operations, park and PRNSA history, and any other updates. There will be a small hike included in the day's activities. Lunch will be done through a potluck, which you can sign up for through here. This will be an interactive training showing you how to get the most out of your experiences with the National Seashore.
