Classes start on Feb. 24

The seven-week Docent/Biofact Docent training course at the California Living Museum (CALM) is scheduled, each Saturday, February 24 through March 24; and April 7 and 14, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the zoo. If you love wildlife, nature, children, and sharing information about CALM with thousands of people, then we need you. There is no cost for the course, however, Docents must submit to fingerprinting and a T.B. test at their cost. The deadline to apply is February 21, by 4 p.m.

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Program training class is scheduled April 7 and 14 from 2 - 4 p.m. at the zoo. Volunteers assist CALM’s Animal Keepers in the zoo’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and will learn how to care for more than 800 injured and orphaned animals that come to the facility each year. A $20 materials fee will be charged for the rehabilitation class. The deadline to apply is April 4, by 4 p.m.

Both Docents and Wildlife Rehabilitation Program volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Biofact Docents must be at least 15 years old.
Both programs are rewarding experiences and vital to the success of the zoo. All attendees are required to provide a yearly commitment to the program and there is a minimum time requirement of four hours a month for all three programs.
