FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - The Arboretum at Flagstaff is looking for members of the community who have a deep love of the land and fascination with nature to volunteer at The Arboretum for the upcoming year. Docents lead visitors on daily tours of the gardens at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. every day from April through October. Training begins with an Introductory Session on Tuesday, Jan. 27 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. If you are interested in learning about native plants and the local ecosystem, classes will be offered on Tuesday afternoons in February, March, and April that will prepare you to share information about the natural history of the Colorado Plateau with visitors.

A full description of the docent program is available on The Arboretum's Web site at www.thearb.org. Or call Rachel Edelstein at (928) 774-1442, ext. 110 for more information.
