Volunteer

Gardens need people to bring them to life, and people to nourish and pass them into future hands. Duke Gardens volunteers are that promise to the future. We cannot overstate the essential contribution volunteers make to 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 and challenge you to expand your knowledge of the natural world and help each visitor find inspiration, enjoyment and a stronger connection to Duke Gardens.
