My interest in marine mammals began with seeing them so often while sailboat racing. We debated "seal or sea lion" with highly questionable doubt.
Become an education volunteer at the Marine Mammal Center and learn about them, and start spreading your passion and knowledge of The Marine Mammal Center and its work to others.
In addition to volunteering at the Center, this opens up other opportunities like Pier 39 Docenting, and other outreach and special events.
The Marine Mammal Center Education Department is holding a two-day training for all those who want to help docent at the Information Desk, engage visitors at the 2nd level overlook where the animals are, and begin the process of becoming a tour guide.
The trainings will be held on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 at the Center in Sausalito from 10-4. Attendance is required for both days. Detailed info is here:
Volunteers are required to commit 16 hours a week (1 4-hr shift a week) for a minimum of 6 months.
There is a small class fee, but if that is a problem discuss let staff know.
For more information or to register for the training, please email [masked] or call [masked].
