The Myriad Botanical Gardens would love to have you volunteer for our special events throughout the year. With a huge variety of events including Children’s Garden Festival, Pumpkinville, Bug Out!, Full Moon Bike Ride, Merry and Bright, Adventure Week, Gardening School and others, we have something for everyone. Volunteers interact with adults and children in a number of ways including helping with crafts, greeting guests, reading to children and more.
