The ENC is seeking new Museum Docents to staff the front desk, answer phones, greet visitors and provide basic information about the ENC.

Docents staff the front desk from 8AM – 12PM or from 12 – 4PM on Saturdays and Sundays, and from 8 – 12:30 and 12:30 – 5PM weekdays. Weekday docents commit to one regular/consistent shift per week. Weekend docents commit to at least one weekend day per month.


Desired Skills and Experience:   

Comfortable working with people of all ages from diverse backgrounds.  Willingness to share information in a way that fosters an appreciation for natural resource conservation and sustainable living. Must be friendly, courteous, and possess good communication skills. Knowledge of Orange County natural history and green building a plus!


What does training include?

Training includes an overview of frequently asked questions, a description of the new building’s sustainability features, and a brief narrative of the ENC’s history and current programs.  Docents will view a 1-hour presentation, tour the building and grounds, and learn the phone system.


More about the ENC Facility:

Our facility was awarded the highest level of “green” building certification – a LEED Platinum Certification – the first of its kind in Orange County.  LEED stands for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.”  The building offers a comprehensive indoor-outdoor educational “habitat,” where visitors can learn about sustainable living and building, and deepen their appreciation of California’s natural resources and wild places.
