Volunteer orientation at Botanical Gardens

Date(s) - Thursday, Mar 14, 2019
10:00 am - 2:30 pm


The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will host a volunteer orientation from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 14 at the Botanical Gardens, 2655 South Park Ave., Buffalo.

Botanical Gardens volunteers meet friendly people, learn more about plants and provide support for the Gardens’ ever-growing programs. Volunteers may train as a horticulture volunteer and work inside and outside the greenhouses or they may choose to help maintain the facilities with carpentry, electrical and maintenance work. Volunteers can also help with administrative support and computer tasks or work in the gift shop or admissions. Training as an education volunteer means providing hands-on activities for visitors of all ages. Finally, there are volunteers that help with special events and weddings.
Volunteers must RSVP by March 4 for the orientation. To sign up, contact Karen Hammer, program and volunteer coordinator, at khammer@buffalogardens.com or 827-1584 ext. 207.
