COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Calling all nature lovers! The City of College Station is looking for volunteers to guide visitors at Lick Creek Nature Center.

Lick Creek Park in College Station features several miles of trails and indigenous plants and animals. It is a great spot for hiking, cycling, bird watching, and nature study.

In October of 2017, Lick Creek Nature Center opened at the park. The facility features indoor and outdoor classrooms, a meeting room, an amphitheater, native plant displays, a monarch butterfly garden, restrooms and office space.

The City of College Station is searching for docents to help operate the nature center. You must be at least eighteen years old. It is a great way to serve the community if you enjoy being outdoors and interacting with people.

Coming up on Saturday, August 18, the city is hosting docent orientation. The session will teach volunteers everything they will need to make every visitor's experience a great one.

Orientation will be from noon to 3:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

The orientation is free, but they are asking that volunteers register. You can call (979) 764-6216, email, or stop by the nature center to register.

The deadline to register is Friday, August 17 at 5:00 p.m.
