Wonders of Wildlife Docent - Job Description

The Wonders of Wildlife Program is designed to introduce New Hampshire youth to the wise use of our state's wildlife and aquatic resources. Trained volunteer WOW docents present interactive Wonders of Wildlife programs targeted to students in grades 3-6. Teachers request specific programs for their classes and our docents travel to the school to present the program. WOW programs are also in demand for scout troops, 4-H and other organized youth groups. Docents also assist in staffing Fish and Game Department events such as Discover WILD New Hampshire Day, and they may be called upon to lead activities at environmentally based field days around the state.

 

 

Those completing the training are expected to contribute at least 48 volunteer hours, during the two years following the training, to the education of youths and adults by delivering programs that focus on New Hampshire wildlife, endangered species, aquatic ecology and wetlands, in schools or to organized youth groups in New Hampshire.
