Volunteer Opportunites

We use a mix of both paid staff and volunteers to help oversee public garden hours and give guided tours. Our volunteers/staff participate in our special open-to-the-public events to help greet visitors, pass out information or enrich visitors immersive experience. 

Volunteers can choose to be one-time only or can make regular recurring commitments according to their schedule. Your participation is invaluable to us continuing our programs!

We currently have volunteer positions open for the following:

We appreciate as many days as you are willing and available to offer! We highly value our volunteers as their efforts allow us to continue open the gardens to the public at no charge
