Arizona–Sonora Desert Museum Accepting Applications for Docent Program

New docents will be encouraged to complete all 4 didactic training cycles, but will need to complete a minimum of 2 cycles in order to earn the badge and title of “Docent.” Training will involve at-home, self-guided study in addition to on-grounds lectures and hands-on practice. Our first on-grounds training will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2024.
