The University of Alaska Museum of the North is looking for volunteer docents for its Directed Discovery school tour programs during the fall 2014 semester.

Docents use the museum’s exhibits and hands-on collection to teach students about science, culture and art. No experience is necessary. Credit is available through UAF.

For more information or to register for the training, which takes place Sept. 8-19, call 907-474-5360 or email
