Care to share your passion for Lincoln Park? The Lincoln Park Conservancy and the Chicago Park District are seeking individuals to participate in a docent program at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool in Lincoln Park. Volunteer docents foster a greater appreciation and understanding of this beautiful Lincoln Park site by providing interpretative tours. Beginning on Saturday, April 6, 2013 new docents will begin six weeks of training from area experts on horticulture, the art of interpretation, the history of Lincoln Park, and landscape design. If you love nature, history or horticulture and want to learn more about Lincoln Park, this is the opportunity for you.
Docents give free interpretive tours of the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool. Recently designated as a National Historic Landmark, the Lily Pool is a Prairie style masterpiece with stone paths, native wildflowers, wooden pavilion, and a waterfall.
