NEW Tech Tips for Docents - Get more out of Personal Computing and the Internet


As of May 2006, the first "official" SLOCoastDocents Yahoo Group, sanctioned by the Docent Council was created.  This private group consists of the docent volunteers of the San Luis Obispo, California State Parks Central Coast Sector, and is for members only. The group is for the usage and communication of the docents.  All messages will be moderated.

Anyone interested in this website, docents.info, should also join the public "Docents" Yahoo! Group"

Official State Park "Walk Docents" should also join Norma Wightman's private "WalkDocents Yahoo! Group"
"Joining" gives you more rights than simply "subscribing"
Yahoo! Groups Help will answer questions you may have
