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 Lincoln Park Conservatory. Volunteer docents foster a greater appreciation and understanding of this beautiful Lincoln Park site by providing interpretative tours. Beginning on Saturday, October 11, 2014 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.
 
Deadline registration: Monday, October 6.
 
Docents give free interpretive tours of the Lincoln Park Conservatory, a treasured Victorian glass house with collections of tropical plants, a show house, all surrounded by two historic gardens. Docents can volunteer on weekends and weekdays. Tours are available to the general public and organizations.
