PHOENIX, AZ | February 07, 2013

The Nature Conservancy is accepting applications for volunteer docents for the new gallery space in Old Town Scottsdale focusing on Restoring Arizona’s Forests. The gallery, located at 7056 East Main Street, on the corner of Main and Marshal Way in Scottsdale, features Arizona’s forest story from the impact of catastrophic wildfires to the new collaborative restoration efforts.

Forests filter and store our water, clean the air and offer a place for us to play and escape the desert heat, yet our forests are dense and prone to unnatural, severe fires. The objective of the Nature Conservancy gallery is to raise awareness about the dire state of our forests and garner support for collaborative projects designed to improve the health of our forests and protect communities and wildlife.

Docent duties:

  • Welcome and engage guests about The Nature Conservancy’s collaborative new solutions to restoring the health of Arizona’s forests
  • Should have a love of nature and art and a genuine interest in the environment
  • Should have spent in time Arizona’s forests and able to express desire for creating healthier forest for future


  • 4 hours per week
  • 2-hour training on February 12 or 19, 2013

Deadline to register:
February 11, 2013

E-mail ealott@tnc.org or call Liz Lott, 602-322-6980
