SANTA BARBARA —The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum will begin its next 10-week docent training program Jan. 8.
The sessions will run through March 12.
Participants will study and learn about the Chumash people, commercial diving and fishing milestones, the Santa Barbara Channel’s military history and Santa Barbara as the birthplace of the environmental movement.
Docents also will get to be a part of the museum’s volunteer team and support the mission to create exhibits and educational experiences, according to a news release.
“Docents also enjoy the social environment of the Museum, make new friends, and gain a feeling of fulfillment,” Volunteer Coordinator Jesse Baker-Lorelli said in the release.
