K-State Gardens to host docent training

Submitted by Sue White

Gardens with coneflowers

Spring is coming, which means K-State Gardens visitors will be requesting guided tours. That means knowledgeable docent tour leaders are needed, so docent training is being offered. The only qualifications needed are interest in the K-State Gardens and a willingness to help.

The training will consist of three two-hour sessions from 2-4 p.m. on the following Wednesdays: March 30, April 6 and April 13. The first session covers the Gardens history and layout and tour of the Visitor Center grounds. The second covers the specialty gardens and collections and a tour of the Conservatory grounds. The last session covers interpretation and a panel of experienced tour leaders with tips and a practice tour. 

If you would like to participate, please call 785-532-3271 and leave a message or email ksugardens@k-state.edu.
