Volunteer, It's Fun, Meet People, and Learn!

The Durango Botanic Gardens would not exist without its dedicated volunteers; they're the backbone of our gardens. Our volunteers can be found in the Gardens most Saturday mornings, spring through fall, usually from 9am-noon.  Spending a Saturday morning in our gardens doing maintenance work may not sound like the most exciting way to kick off your weekend but most volunteers love it. It's great exercise and an opportunity to pick up some tips about gardening from fellow gardeners. If you love being outdoors and working in gardens, please consider volunteering.  And, there are many volunteer opportunities available that do not involve garden maintenance

Even if you're not a member but just want to learn more about plants, get some tips from our horticulturalists and master gardeners, please stop by. The more hands the better. No experience necessary; we will pair you with an experienced volunteer.  Bring gloves, water, hats, sun screen, and a few tools if you have them, otherwise we usually have some extra. Mostly, we just need YOU!  If interested in aligning your interests with our volunteer opportunities, contact Jill Salka at jillsalka@gmail.com or call our general number at 970-880-4841.
