Botanistas

Botanista WellesleyanaThe Botanistas are the student organization that supports the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens in many ways:

  • Help with Botanic Gardens events like Tree Mobs and Smoothie Night
  • Plan and hold student events like Tranquilitea that provide a study break and connect students to the Botanic Gardens
  • Train members to give tours of the Botanic Gardens on weekends to students, prospective students, and other visitors
  • Volunteer to help with greenhouse and garden maintenance tasks
  • Learn more about plants through lectures, workshops and field trips to places like the glass flower exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History

The Botanistas are led by the Dorothy Thorndike Botanic Gardens Interns and have meetings every other week during the academic year.
