We rely on our volunteers to help keep the Gardens looking beautiful and running smoothly. 

Current volunteer opportunities at the Botanical Gardens include: 

  • Weekday docent: Welcoming visitors in the Greenhouse or Outdoor Gardens. 
  • Plant Sales and Special Events – Join our staff for these special endeavors.  Many friends working together make for great events!
  • Working alongside a horticulturist in the gardens or greenhouse.
