Wellesley College Botanic Gardens deeply appreciates our wonderful volunteers, who give their time and energy to aid us in achieving our educational mission. Through their dedication, our volunteers are constantly stretching and redefining our efforts to connect the campus and all of our local communities with plants and gardens, and the incredible benefits they offer to our lives.

Volunteers support the Botanic Gardens

  • As greeters who welcome attendees to the Visitor Center and gardens
  • As docents who give tours of the botanic gardens
  • As children's program leaders who support kids' activities in the Visitor Center
  • As participants in special projects for exhibit interpretation, research, and art

Volunteers receive the following benefits:

  • Volunteer trainings
  • Volunteer appreciation and social gatherings
