Garden Ambassadors promote the Garden during normal admission hours. Take a quick online orientation under the Volunteer Gateway section of our website to familiarize yourself with the basics of the Ambassador role. Garden Ambassadors help guests appreciate the Garden by informing them of the Garden’s history and features. If you are looking for a way to spend time in the beauty of the Garden while becoming an essential part of our volunteer community, Ambassador volunteering is for you!
