Botanical Garden Volunteers
Highlands Botanical Garden needs you — join our intrepid and dedicated group of volunteers! All levels of experience are welcome — come learn about gardening and landscaping with native plants, or just share your passion for gardening or native plant conservation. Wednesdays are regular volunteer work days, but any schedule can be accommodated.
Our Adopt-a-Garden program is designed to give volunteers the opportunity to “adopt” one of our many garden areas, such as the Bog Garden, Azalea Walk, or Pollinator Garden. Volunteers would be in charge of tending to their assigned garden each week under the direction of the Horticultural Specialist. Trail maintenance opportunities are available too.
For more information on volunteering as a group, please email us at email@example.com.
