Get eye to eye with a butterfly in the exhibit Butterflies & Blooms coming to the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park this fall. The popular exhibit returns by overwhelming demand to San Francisco’s beloved Victorian greenhouse, transforming its Special Exhibit gallery into a beautiful and intimate cottage garden aflutter with hundreds of butterflies on the wing including magnificent monarchs, western swallowtails, painted ladies and more.

Exhibit volunteers talk to visitors about the mysterious process of metamorphosis, butterfly anatomy, and the pollinator's critical role in the life cycle of plants. This volunteer position is for you if you're comfortable approaching and talking with visitors of all ages.

The Conservatory requests that volunteers commit to two shifts per month for one year. Shifts are available from 10:00-1:00 or 1:00-4:00 Tuesday-Sunday. In return, the Conservatory offers volunteers, free entry during regular hours, free lectures and social events, and a discount in the gift shop.
