Come volunteer with a weekly environmental education class held at the Cape Fear Botanical Garden. Children in grades 3-5 learn about science through hands-on activities and outdoor explorations. This group of children is very small (usually only 3-5 students), but they have some behavioral issues that we think a volunteer could help with. By assisting with these classes you'd help keep the children on track, learning, and enjoying this opportunity for in-person learning. They meet every Friday from 4pm - 5pm. We would like a volunteer who could attend most if not every Friday class, so that the children can get to know you and build a connection. All classes are held entirely outdoors with a covered pavilion and the volunteer must be willing to wear a mask during the entire class.
The purpose of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden is to enrich, inspire and serve the Cape Fear Region as a dynamic center for the collection, culture, and aesthetic display of plants; to encourage the enjoyment of the natural beauty of plants and birds; to promote environmental stewardship; and to provide educational and research resources for the community.
Situated on the bluffs of the Cape Fear River, at the confluence of the Cape Fear River and the Cross Creek River, The Cape Fear Botanical Garden maintains original, old growth forest and plants indigenous to the area. The 85-acre garden is comprised of both formal, cultivated gardens and natural woodland areas intersected with a network of over 3 miles of barrier-free foot-trails with interpretive signs that provide for a scenic and educational exploration of the forest above the river.
The Garden offers educational opportunities, tours, and various seasonal events ranging from the annual fall "Harvest Hoedown" to the summer Symphony concert in the amphitheater.
