Now that the ENC is open on Sundays we are seeking new Museum Docents to staff the front desk, answer phones, greet visitors and provide basic information about the ENC.


 


Docents staff the front desk from 8AM – 12PM or from 12 – 4PM on Saturdays and Sundays.


 


Desired Skills and Experience:           


Comfortable working with people of all ages from diverse backgrounds.  Willingness to share information in a way that fosters an appreciation for natural resource conservation and sustainable living. Must be friendly, courteous, and possess good communication skills. Knowledge of Orange County natural history and green building a plus!


 


How to make it happen:


Send Lori an email, and she will reply with the docent manual.  Read the manual and return the last page, signed.  Once Lori receives that page, she will call you to schedule one-on-one training!


 


What does training include?


Training includes an overview of frequently asked questions, a description of the new building’s sustainability features, and a brief narrative of the ENC’s history and current programs.  Docents will view a 1-hour presentation, tour the building and grounds, and learn the phone system.


 


More about the ENC Facility:


Our facility was awarded the highest level of “green” building certification – a LEED Platinum Certification – the first of its kind in Orange County.  LEED stands for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.”  The building offers a comprehensive indoor-outdoor educational “habitat,” where visitors can learn about sustainable living and building, and deepen their appreciation of California’s natural resources and wild places.
