Located about four and a half miles north of Refugio State Beach on the Gaviota Coast, the Arroyo Hondo Preserve is a 782-acre canyon with sweeping views of the coastline that serves as home to thousands of plant and animal species. It’s a wondrous place to visit, but for those who’d like to do more than just behold the exquisite nature, there is the opportunity to learn — and teach others — about the preserve by becoming a docent. Run by the Land Trust, the docent program training includes presentations, educational walks on the preserve, shadowing and assisting experienced docents, and some homework. The introductory meeting is Monday, October 6, 1-3 p.m.; classes are Mondays, October 13-November 24, 1-4 p.m. All training takes place at the Arroyo Hondo Barn. To sign up to be a docent, email your name and contact info to volunteer@sblandtrust.org. For more information, see sblandtrust.org.
