Share the Past, Shape the Future – Become a Docent!

Calling all History Lovers

Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center is looking for docent volunteers for the 2020-2021 season.

Docent volunteers will learn about local Johns Creek history with a special focus on agrarian life from the mid-1800s represented by the historic village and artifacts in AMNP’s collection.

Docents will engage with museum visitors, fielding their questions and sharing knowledge to enrich the guest experience. Training is carried out through a series of lectures, suggested readings, and walking tours.

Please join us on January 25th, at 1:00 PM for an informational seminar.  The Heritage Coordinator will introduce prospective docents to our preservation efforts, collection highlights, and tour the heritage village. Current docents will be on hand to share their experiences.  We welcome all adults with enthusiasm for Autrey Mill and who love learning about history to apply to become a docent.

For more information, please contact Lauren Ackermann, Program Coordinator, at

Docents support the Museum’s collections, research, and exhibits while assisting the Heritage Coordinator in collections cataloging, providing visitors highlights tours, and facilitating hands-on activities. The program is designed to offer all visitors an exciting and engaging experience that stimulates conversation, promotes an appreciation of Autrey Mill and surrounding Johns Creek community, and deepens their understanding of history.

We are seeking those who love the art of story-telling and enjoy meeting new people. At Autrey Mill, docents have the opportunity to interact with diverse audiences, age groups, and learning styles. If you are interested in helping or learning more please email:
