Volunteers Making the Spectacular Holiday Blooms

It takes many hands to help a garden grow!  Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden’s volunteers contribute their talents, enthusiasm and energy to many different areas within the daily and seasonal functions of the Garden.  Our dedicated volunteers enjoy the beauty of nature, while playing important roles from horticulture to special events and educational tours while they generously give their gift of time to the Garden.

Volunteer Opportunities at the Garden:

  • Gardening - Planting, weeding, mulching, digging, raking and pruning

  • Welcome Center Desk - Answering the phone, meeting, greeting and introducing the Garden to our visitors

  • Special Events – Assisting with special events such as concerts, lectures, plant sales, symposia, etc.

  • Tour Guide/Docent - Leading tours through our Welcome Center and Gardens for scheduled groups. Docents will be provided with training, a guide book and notified of garden display changes.  

  • Special Skills you would like to share such as the making of the Spectacular Holiday Blooms
