Weekly Volunteer Work Party

Attend one of our volunteer work parties every Thursday afternoon from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm! Come dressed for the weather and ready to work alongside our knowledgeable staff. Work gloves and water bottles are recommended. Please arrive on time to debrief everyone together on our task or project for the day.

Due to the seasonality of Garden work, we are accepting volunteers to our Thursday work parties on a case-by-case basis. This is to ensure we have enough tasks and staff supervision to go around. Please email us at volunteer@kruckeberg.org if you are interested in attending a Thursday work party.

Summer Volunteers: Background checks are required for summer volunteers, as we host a variety of youth summer programs.

Youth Programs

Help empower the next generation through nature-based education and exploration at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden!

Our youth programs aim to help kids create meaningful connections to natural spaces through games, activities, art, and play. We need passionate volunteers to help with youth programs such as spring/fall field trips, summer programs, and weekend events. 

No prior experience is required, but volunteers should possess enthusiasm about nature and excitement to work with kids in an outdoor garden setting! Volunteers must be at least 14 years old.

Current youth program volunteer opportunities:

We are currently looking for adult volunteers for our spring field trips, special events, and our summer youth program.

If interested, email programs@kruckeberg.org or call 206-546-1281
