ORGANIZATION: Friends of Bellefontaine Cemetery & Arboretum

Lower Lake
Group of Volunteers helping to expand native plantings around the Lower Lake.

This classification of volunteer will be assigned to the Director of Horticulture, Curator of Living Collections and their Team. Gardeners will complete all manner of tasks associated with the planting and maintenance of the vegetation within the Cemetery/Arboretum. Consideration will be given to particular skill sets volunteers possess which may aid in specific task assignments. Due to the scope and the number of projects in this category of volunteerism a centralized location has been identified which will aid in the communication to this group. During the initial role out of the new 100 year Master Plan, opportunities to work with Native plant types and the creation of Habitats through these types of plantings will be many. Time expectations for this volunteer type are flexible, but must be within the normal operating hours of the Cemetery/Arboretum and be approved by the Horticulture Team. Gardeners will have a unique opportunity to work with and learn directly from the Horticulturist.

Safety is always a focus at Bellefontaine. All cemetery activities follow the guidelines of the St. Louis City and Country COVID mandates.
