Cape Fear Botanical Garden Entry

The Cape Fear Botanical Garden hosts a Halloween event for families including candy stations for kids to trick or treat, crafts, educational activities, and vendors. The event is three nights and the Garden generally recruits volunteers to help kids with crafts and distribute candy. This year we would also like to find a volunteer or two for each night to read Halloween stories to kids around the campfire. It's a fun and easy volunteer opportunity and would allow the volunteer to have free entrance to the event. We need the volunteer to commit to stay from 4:30pm -9:00pm to allow the activity to stay open the whole time people are here. We will provide Halloween stories for kids which are not too spooky and we have a fire pit in the Children's Garden where we will build a campfire. Masks are required due to the number of people at the event.

No particular skills are necessary but if you're good at storytelling or interacting with small children that's a plus.

About Cape Fear Botanical Garden


P. O. Box 53485, Fayetteville, NC 28305, US

Mission Statement

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.
