Chicago Park District Looking for Ambassadors

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

Meet visitors from around the world, while guiding them around two of the city’s most unique architectural and natural landscapes as a volunteer for the Lincoln Park Conservancy Docent program. The Lincoln Park Conservancy is seeking volunteers to welcome visitors to the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool or Lincoln Park Conservatory and Gardens in Lincoln Park, and share with them their knowledge of these hidden gems. Docents, volunteers trained to educate the public, help foster a greater appreciation and understanding of these two beautiful and historic park treasures.  Training begins on Saturday, March 31, 2018 and continues for six Saturday mornings where trainees will learn from area experts about the art of interpretation, the history of Lincoln Park, wildlife, plant life and landscape architecture.  Deadline to register is Friday, March 23, 2018. After completing the training, docents will give free tours to the public and private groups.  Volunteer docents are asked to commit to two shifts (six hours total) per month. For more information, please contact Rebecca Conant, Lincoln Park Conservancy Programs Manager at (773)883-7275,
