COVID-19 Update:  Duke Gardens has begun a phased reopening, with phase 1 limited to Duke students, faculty & staff with a Duke ID, timed ticket and symptom monitoring. We do not have a date for phase 2 at this time. Read more here.

This decision is in keeping with Duke University’s policies aiming to minimize health and safety risks to the Duke community and beyond, and to encourage social distancing to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The closure includes both indoor and outdoor spaces. The temporary closure includes all indoor and outdoor areas.

Due to these campus-wide policies, volunteer opportunities at Duke Gardens are currently paused. But we appreciate your interest in volunteering with Duke Gardens. Please check this page in early spring for updated information on when volunteer opportunities may resume.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming volunteers and visitors again in the future.

All information is subject to change on short notice. See more updates and advisories from Duke University at coronavirus.duke.edu.
