The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will hold a volunteer orientation from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6 at the Botanical Gardens, 2655 South Park Ave., Buffalo.

Botanical Gardens volunteers get the chance to meet some friendly people, learn more about plants and provide support for programs. Horticulture volunteers work inside and outside the greenhouses on plant projects, while others help maintain the facilities with carpentry, electrical, and maintenance work.  Other options include administrative support work doing office/computer tasks.

Docents work in the education department, doing hands-on activities with all ages. There are also volunteers who help out during special events and weddings.
