Why such a small staff?
Most public gardens this size and scope would have an average of 20 plus full-time staff. The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens operates with a minimal staff, thanks in-part to its extensive use of community volunteers (primarily seniors, youth and handicapped individuals).
We do have internship opportunities each summer for individuals studying botany, horticulture, agriculture, horticultural therapy, or therapeutic sciences. Please contact Nettie Eakes above.
The non-profit Friends of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Foundation provides major funding for landscape planning and construction, staff education and volunteer support along with advocacy. It works to form a public/private partnership that enables the Gardens to do more with less and functions as an advocate for the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. In addition, the Friends of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens owns and operates this web site.
