About

Brookside Gardens hosts an incredible live butterfly exhibit each year in our conservatory. This year's exhibit runs April through September. North American, South American and Asian Butterfly species in all stages of development and their associated host plants are featured in this dynamic exhibit.

Volunteer positions available in the show include: Ticket Taker and Flight Attendant. Ticket Takers are stationed just outside the exhibit and are responsible for greeting visitors and collecting tickets, introducing visitors to the exhibit rules, and coordinating exhibit entry. Flight Attendants are stationed inside the exhibit and enforce the exhibit rules and show off exhibit highlights.

All volunteers need to sign up for one On-Site Training date. Volunteers will also complete an additional online tutorial before On-Site training. After attending training volunteers will be able to access our online calendar to schedule their shifts.

Student volunteers ages 11-13 may volunteer as a one on one team with a registered and trained parent or adult guardian.
