Volunteer

Gardens need people to bring them to life! Volunteers are an essential part of the growth, purpose and beauty of the Gardens. Volunteers bring their interests, energy, knowledge and passion to the Gardens, helping visitors by: 
•      offering information
•      guiding tours and leading education programs
•      maintaining gardens
•      promoting membership
•      enriching each visitor’s experience

We welcome you to expand your knowledge of the natural world and help each visitor find inspiration, enjoyment and a stronger connection to Duke Gardens.
