Santa Monica Pier Seeks Docents

The current bridge, above, was built in 1939 and is currently below grade. 

The Santa Monica Pier is seeking volunteer docents to guide visitors through the history of the century-old pier. Docents will operate out of the new Pier Shop and take visitors on walking historical tours as well. No experience or prior knowledge is necessary to apply, as docents will participate in a thorough training session in late June to prepare for the beginning of the docent program in July.

Docents will be required to work on their feet and to walk the length of the Pier two to three times per day. The shifts will be late morning/early afternoons on Saturdays and Sundays and docents are expected to volunteer one to two days per month.

For more information or to sign up to volunteer, call 310.458.4939 or email
