Volunteer Opportunities – Summer/Fall 2021

The East Cut is home to incredible spaces, art pieces, plants, and skyline-defining architecture. This spring, The East Cut CBD is creating a series of neighborhood tours based on four different themes: hidden places, public art, Salesforce Park horticulture, and architecture.

>> East Cut Tour Docents

Volunteer researchers will complete the creation of engaging and fascinating tours, telling the stories of the spaces that make and surround The East Cut. Join a community of neighborhood learners and art/plants/open spaces/architecture lovers! Researchers will participate in the creation of 4 tours and work with The East Cut CBD staff and docents on training and walk-shops.
Research projects are ongoing. Docent training begins in August 2021.
