Sharing a Love of Nature - The Torrey Pines Docent Society

The volunteers of Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve provide many services to the Reserve and its visitors. While some volunteers work once a year on Earth Day, or monthly as part of Scripps Assist, one core group shows up 365 days a year to greet visitors at the Lodge, lead trail walks, maintain trails, and work on a variety of projects. This dedicated group is the Torrey Pines Docent Society. Organized in 1975, the Docent Society is one of the oldest volunteer groups in the California State Park System and provides thousands of hours of service annually.  In this film, the Torrey Pines Association celebrates the myriad activities of the Torrey Pines Docent Society. Find out more about the role of docents at the Reserve, and why they love what they do.
