Docent - a person who acts as a guide, typically on a voluntary basis, in a museum, art gallery, or zoo. Are you a history buff and/or interested in volunteering for HASFR? Are you new to Fort Riley? Interested in the 160 years of history that Fort Riley has accumulated? Do you have family coming to visit and you don’t know what you will do with them? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re in luck. HASFR provides - in person, driving, or walking guided tours - at no cost. We are always on the lookout for new docents. Docent training will be scheduled on a quarterly basis. Training is instructed by Dr. Bob Smith, Fort Riley Museum Curator. During training you will receive information packets on what sites the walking and driving tours contain. Dr. Smith will take the training class on the actual tours as well. Each new docent will have all the necessary knowledge and items to be successful on tours.
Questions and requests for tours can be addressed by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
