Amateur nature lovers can train to be experts starting next month when the Cosumnes River Preserve begins a program to train volunteers to be docents.
Classes begin at 6 p.m. Oct. 3 at the preserve site, 13501 Franklin Blvd. in Galt. In all, there will be four evening classes and one Saturday session.
Participants will be trained by naturalists on all aspects of the preserve and its project, as well as wildlife-friendly farming, birds, cultural history and plants.
