Docent volunteer opportunities available at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve

December 31, 2019

Autrey Mill docentsAutrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center is looking for docent volunteers for the 2019-2020 season.

Docent volunteers will learn about local Johns Creek history with a special focus on agrarian life from the mid-1800s represented by the historic village and artifacts in AMNP’s collection.

Docents will engage with museum visitors, fielding their questions and sharing knowledge to enrich the guest experience. Training is carried out through a series of lectures, suggested readings, and walking tours.

Autrey Mill will hold an docent information seminar on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. The Heritage Curator will introduce prospective docents to our preservation efforts, collection highlights, and tour the heritage village. Current docents will be on hand to share their experiences.

Learn more about the docent program on the Autrey Mill website.
