Thank you for considering volunteering at California Botanic Garden.
Your valuable time is appreciated!
Volunteers are vital to the life, health and advancement of the mission of California Botanic Garden (CalBG) to grow, display, study and conserve California’s native plants. CalBG volunteers work inside or outdoors, help maintain the Garden’s grounds, help staff during special events, lead tours for the public, assist development and communication staff reach out to the public—just to name a few opportunities.
The staff of CalBG appreciate our volunteers immensely. We strive to provide interesting ways for volunteers to invest their skills and expertise in worthwhile work, and we offer frequent opportunities for learning new skills, acquiring new knowledge, meeting new friends and participating in new and exciting experiences. Volunteers contribute service to CalBG in a wide variety of ways. Some volunteers contribute time on a regular basis, while others volunteer in a less-structured or scheduled manner. New projects and special events arise on an ongoing basis. We endeavor to keep Volunteers informed so they can expand their involvement and get to know other areas of the Garden. Placements are made based on individual Volunteer interests, schedules, and abilities, as well as the current and most pressing needs of the Garden.
