Goleta Valley Historical Society Sets Training for Stow House Docents

Agriculture! Ancestry! Architecture! Artifacts! And gardens!

Come learn to lead tours at Rancho La Patera. Join our community of committed volunteers who educate visitors about this landmark ranch and our community history.

The Goleta Valley Historical Society is conducting training sessions for Stow House Docents on March 1 and March 13 with three follow-up sessions to shadow veteran docents.

This is a wonderful opportunity to share and educate visitors about 19th-century daily life in our beautiful valley, as well as garden and horticulture history.

GVHS offers continuing opportunities for docents and volunteers to explore local history, learn about early and influential pioneer families and the “roots” of agriculture in California. Docents are requested to conduct one Stow House weekend tour per month.

For more information, contact education coordinator Maureen Belle at [email protected] or 805.681.7216 x3.

— Dacia Harwood is the events and marketing coordinator for the Goleta Valley Historical Society.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
