The Myriad Gardens is always looking for volunteers to assist with a wide variety of programs and events going on at the Gardens. Volunteers do not need a green thumb to help! Many opportunities are available for people interested in getting involved. The primary requirement is a desire to be a part of a vibrant volunteer community that supports the programs of one of the premiere attractions in the state!

Like any busy office, the Myriad Gardens always needs organized individuals to help administratively. From filing to helping stuff envelopes to entering names into the mailing list database, there is always plenty of work for an additional pair of hands! Want to be out and about? Our Marketing Department can always use help hanging posters in and around downtown Oklahoma City.
If you are a natural teacher or simply love plants and want to share your enthusiasm by helping teach one of our many education programs, this is an area that always needs additional help. Work with our Director of Education and/or our Children’s Garden Manager on programs that help bring nature to life. We have education programs for both children and adults.
Love to talk to people? Love to talk to people about plants? With additional training, learn to greet visitors in the Crystal Bridge and give Guided Tours to our adult, senior and student scheduled groups. The primary responsibility of this position is to give accurate, interesting information to enhance guest visits. In addition, we want people to convey enthusiasm and positive energy about the environment and about the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
As a horticulture volunteer, you would help to maintain the landscaping throughout the Crystal Bridge and the outside Gardens.
