Tour Guide Training — Oct. 25

If you are a history buff, love learning new things, and enjoy sharing your knowledge with others, consider becoming an official Allerton Tour Guide. Learn everything there is to know about Robert Allerton, his family, the estate, and the ins and outs of the Mansion during the upcoming session of Tour Guide Training.

Become part of Allerton’s devoted group of individuals who love the estate and its history and sharing that with the public. We rely on Allerton Tour Guides to lead all tours in the Mansion, Gardens, and Natural Areas. The upcoming tour guide training will focus on Mansion tours specifically.

All new trainees will need to attend a general information session at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11 in the Mansion Library, as well as two practice tour dates on Oct. 13, 18, 25, or 27, all at 6 p.m. Registration is required for all training sessions (register below).

Trainees will receive all necessary information, study materials, and fact sheets to assist them in the tour guide training process.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about Allerton Park is welcome to attend. By becoming an Allerton Tour Guide, participants are also becoming a part of our highly valued group of Allerton Volunteers. Trainees will be asked to submit a Volunteer Application and a signed Volunteer Waiver in order to proceed with training. There will be time to do this during the October 11th session; however, prior completion of both forms is highly recommended.

If you have any questions about the tour guide training or volunteering for Allerton, please contact Olivia at owarren@illinois.edu.
