Volunteer, It's Fun and You Learn!
The Durango Botanic Gardens would not exist without its dedicated volunteers; they're the backbone of our gardens. Our volunteers can be found in the Gardens most Saturday mornings, spring through fall, usually from 9am-noon. Spending a Saturday morning in our gardens doing maintenance work may not sound like the most exciting way to kick off your weekend but most volunteers love it. It's great exercise and an opportunity to pick up some tips about gardening from fellow gardeners. If you love being outdoors and working in gardens, please consider volunteering.
Even if you're not a member but just want to learn more about plants, get some tips from our horticulturalists and master gardeners, please stop by. The more hands the better. Bring gloves, water, hats, sun screen, and a few tools if you have them, otherwise we usually have some extra. Mostly, we just need YOU! If interested call or text our general number 970-880-4841 or Lynn at 269-282-4850.
Observing our DBG volunteers at work in the gardens, one passerby, remarked:
"I know it's springtime when I see you folks working in the gardens."
Volunteering to do maintenance in the DBG gardens is the cornerstone to our success.
