A New Look for the Topanga Canyon Docents – Thank you, CalParks!


Four members of our Board of Directors are pictured proudly wearing the Topanga Canyon Docents’ new volunteer uniform (from left: Doug Allan, Karin Benson, Lucinda Mittleman and Don Frampton). The acquisition of the State Park volunteer vests and caps was made possible by a generous grant from the California State Parks Foundation. Additional supplemental funds were offered by Topanga Sector Superintendent, Stephen Bylin. While we’ve always worn the Topanga Canyon Docents name tag while acting as volunteer interpreters, we now have a uniform that gives docents a recognizable presence at the park when we volunteer to share our knowledge about wildlife, plants and the history of Topanga State Park with with school groups and the public on our walks and at the visitor center.
