We envision a world where everyone understands and values the importance of plants, butterflies, and the beauty of nature. We encourage the partnership of employees and volunteers, so that we can achieve our mission and offer the community the best services possible. Volunteers contribute their unique talents, skills, and knowledge of our community to provide personalized attention, enable the paid staff to concentrate on the work for which they were trained, and educate the public about our organization and its cause. We recognize that volunteers provide a resource of talent that is unavailable in any other way. We value this contribution and hope to offer a satisfying, productive, and rewarding experience.  

There is always a need for all types of skills and experience levels, so you do not need to be a master gardener or a scientist to apply. Volunteers help with a wide range of projects, from gardening and entomology projects, to educational programs and special events. Volunteers choose activities that fit their interests, talents and abilities.

Whether you are an individual interested in ongoing projects or a group wishing to participate in a gardening project, you can provide vital services and support to Reiman Gardens.

(Onsite volunteer opportunities are available for people 16+ years of age; opportunities for people under the age of 16 available with a parent or legal guardian.)
