Passport Program & Future Training

Share to:

The Passport to Lincoln Park program has so far been a huge success and we’re so grateful to everyone who has participated! More than 50 volunteers signed up for the program, including Conservancy docents and Nature Museum volunteers, along with prospective Conservancy volunteers. We also opened public ticket sales to our two lectures in the program series, “Lincoln Park Architecture & History” with renowned historian Julia Bachrach and “Rehabilitation and Restoration of the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool” with award-winning landscape architect Joel Baldin.

Our other fantastic events in the series have been the “Conservatory and Gardens Showcase,” featuring a variety of signature and specialty tours led by our volunteer docents for each other and our Passport participants, a “North Pond Wildflower & Wildlife Walk” organized by our Manager of Park Stewardship, Maeve Callaghan, and a “North Pond Bird Walk” with Geoff Williamson of Third Coast Birding. Coming up later this month, we’ll host our last, but not least, event in the series, which will be an informational program session with me titled, “A Day in the Life of a Docent, Interpretation, and Volgistics.” Not the most thrilling note to end on, so the Passport program will then wrap up in June with a celebration party for all participants who’ve completed their Passports!

The next available opportunity for docent training will be this fall at the Conservatory starting October 5. More information can be found here: Lincoln Park Docents.
