FAIRFIELD — Training sessions for those who want to become Solano Land Trust open space guides will begin March 1, with the deadline to apply Feb. 27.
The Solano Land Trust operates the Lynch Canyon and Rockville Trails Preserve open space areas. Each area has its own application. The guides, also called docents, will be trained about the area’s waterways, soils, rocks, plants, wild animals and human history. Training session graduates will be eligible to lead hikes, mountain bike trail rides and horse rides.
A tentative schedule calls for training sessions to take place Saturdays from March 1 to April 12, as well as March 21, a Friday. Indoor lessons will occur at the Rush Ranch Nature Center in Suisun Marsh and outdoor sessions at Lynch Canyon and Rockville Trails Estates.
Anyone age 18 or older who is interested can go to www.solanolandtrust.org/Volunteer.aspx to apply. No experience is necessary. Contact Natalie DuMont at [email protected] or 432-0150, ext. 200 for more information.
