At this time the Gardens is looking for welcome desk greeters and gift shop retail sales volunteers. We are looking for volunteers who love to visit with the public and who would love to sell unique gifts from our gift shop. We need 3-4 individuals who have a real interest in volunteering in this area. If you would be interested contact Brandi McKinley, Guest Experience Coordinator and Tilted Tulip Gift Shop Supervisor-307-773-1041 for more information.

We are also seeking volunteers to work outside at the High Plains Arboretum. Activities include weeding, mulching, and installing cages around trees and shrubs. Regular workdays are Mondays September through May, More weekday opportunities are available June – August. If you are interested in helping at the arboretum, please contact Jessica Friis at 307-287-1953 or jfriis@cheyennecity.org.

Why Volunteer?

The award-winning Cheyenne Botanic Gardens volunteer program is horticultural therapy in action. Our volunteer workforce is primarily composed of seniors, youth at risk, youth working on special programs (merit badges or awards programs) and people with disabilities. We also have opportunities for people of any age and training, especially if they have special skills needed at the Gardens.


What Will I Be Doing?

Volunteer tasks are matched to the abilities of the applicant. Some people prefer hosting the front desk, some like to weed and take care of the roses, while others prefer to work in the greenhouse grooming plants. There is always something needing to be done. The rewards are learning about gardening, solar energy, and sustainability, while making new friends and taking home fresh harvests.

“Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let’s stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another.” — Anne Raver
