Volunteer DOCENT Application

Dear potential docent,

An ideal docent for the Noyo Center for Marine Science

  • enjoys talking with people,
  • is reliable and has strong communication skills,
  • is willing to learn,
  • and has enthusiasm for the mission of the Noyo Center, marine science, ocean ecology, and our Mendocino Coast community.

A marine science back ground is not a prerequisite, though we welcome any expertise you may have.

Before you have a solo shift, you will go through a training process with an experienced docent who will share with you all you need to know–or where to find the information. Our staff, other docents, and volunteer community will be here every step of the way to support your integration into our team.

If docenting sounds like the role for you, please fill out the following application and/or contact [email protected]

Thanks so much and we look forward to meeting you!


The Blue Team (Noyo Center Staff, Board, Volunteers, & Docents)
