Event Details

Become a Sikes Adobe Docent or Dust Devil!

If you have a special interest in historical education, come be a docent at the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead. Docents help convey what the pioneer farm experience in Southern California was like, using the Sikes Adobe as the stage. Volunteers learn about the architectural history of the farmhouse, the history of the Sikes family, and the agricultural history of the late 1800s. They also learn tips and techniques for being a docent and learn theory of interpretation. In return, docents commit to leading tours for the public on Sundays 10:30am-3:30pm, and helping with special events like Festive Farmhouse, Valentine Teas, and our upcoming 150th Anniversary Celebration next year. Docent shifts are usually 1 full day (5 hours) or 2 half days a month.
Work side by side with Park Rangers on a weekly basis on Tuesdays 8am-12pm. Get up close and personal with the dirt and plants, become a part of the Dust Devil team. They provide invaluable help with important projects throughout the Park, such as building/maintaining trails and restoring/managing habitat. This is a great way to learn more about the inner workings of the Park. Dust Devil volunteers do not need to commit to coming every week.
