Yolo Basin Foundation is recruiting new docents for the popular Discover the Flyway school program. Potential volunteers should have a desire to learn about local wetlands and an enthusiasm for sharing this with kindergarten through 12th-grade students. Reaching more than 4,000 students a year, Discover the Flyway provides a meaningful outdoor experience for students and volunteers that fosters an appreciation for the wetlands and wildlife of the Central Valley. Volunteers lead or assist with hands-on, interactive, and inquiry-based activities at the Yolo Demonstration Wetlands and Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area.
