  • Volunteer Opportunity Conservatory Ambassador Training
    After the blossoming glory of the display gardens has faded our visitors can find a welcome retreat in the Conservatory. Ambassadors greet and guide visitors to points of interest and informal learning opportunities. This training will introduce volunteers to the Visitor Services department 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. Interview and pre-registration required.  FULL
