Pittsburgh Botanic Garden
Volunteer at Pittsburgh Botanic Garden and share your knowledge and passion for the natural world, alongside a dedicated crew of volunteers and staff in a unique outdoor setting.
A Garden Guide engages tour groups, leading them through the Garden, sharing the history of the grounds, and the Garden’s mission. Through their tours, Garden Guides inspire a love of nature and a sense of environmental responsibility. A typical Garden Guide can command the attention of a group, either large or small while sharing their passion for the Garden in an engaging way.
We are looking for individuals with an interest in local history and basic knowledge of plants. Interpretive information will be provided. Volunteers must enjoy and be comfortable talking to people. Volunteers should be comfortable hiking the paths of the Garden and being outside for 2 hours at a time.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Pittsburgh Botanic Garden
799 Pinkerton Run Road, Oakdale, PA 15071, US
Pittsburgh Botanic Garden inspires people to value plants, garden design and the natural world by cultivating plant collections of the Allegheny Plateau and temperate regions, creating display gardens, conducting educational programs and conserving the environment.
Pittsburgh Botanic Garden is unique, as it is one of the only botanic gardens being built on reclaimed coal-mining land. It is a 460-acre property, and is currently a work in progress, with 60 acres open to the public. Additional land is being reclaimed, and will be home to future gardens and facilities. In time, it will become one of the largest botanic gardens in the country.
