The second season for Trail Tales is on the horizon! The team of 24 volunteer docents would like to invite other area residents to join the Docent team in bringing the Tales of the Trail alive along the Tommy Thompson Trail. Training for the new season will begin in the end of March for 4 days to familiarize new docents with the program, the human history along Fidalgo Bay, the current restoration activities and the myriad organisms that weave their lives along the shoreline.
Docents also receive professional training in interpretive skills and work with veteran docents and the coordinator to organize thematic presentations for the Trail Walks. The 2013 season will see additional walks and Trail Tales presence at other local events like The Fidalgo Shoreline Academy, the Anacortes Waterfront Festival, and National Estuaries Day. There are many roles for volunteers, including but not limited to the guiding and supporting walks along the trail. So if you have an interest in helping to make the 2013 season another success and sharing fun with great people, now is the time to join on.
