• Conservatory Ambassador Training (FULL)

    Date: 10/23/2013

    Location: Matthaei Botanical Gardens

    Time: 1 pm

    Training FULL - After the blossoming glory of the display gardens has faded our visitors can find a welcome retreat in the Conservatory. Ambassadors greet & guide visitors to points of interest and informal learning opportunities. This training will introduce volunteers to the Visitor Services Dept. and cover the basics about the tropical, temperate, and arid biomes and the many fascinating plants that are found in each. Ambassadors commit to two, 3 hour shifts per month and attend ongoing educational sessions. Note: phone interview and pre-registration required.
