To become a guide, you don’t need any special training or knowledge, only enthusiasm. We will teach you what you need and show you where to attain even more knowledge. You will gain a basic knowledge of horticulture, be able to identify dozens of different trees and plants, get a better understanding of the natural world around us and feel good about serving your community.
