Botanical Garden of the Ozarks
The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks (BGO) invites the Northwest Arkansas community to attend their upcoming Volunteer Orientation & Recruitment event on Saturday, February 24 from 10 to 11:30 am.
The beginning of a new year marks the perfect time to embark on a fulfilling journey, and BGO warmly welcomes those who are eager to make a difference in their community.
BGO volunteers are considered part of the organization’s team. Unlike many public gardens, the garden you see today is the result of a volunteer-led, grassroots effort. Without the ongoing hard work and passion of volunteers, the Garden would not be what it is today.
Not only do volunteers get to grow a local non-profit, but they also get the opportunity to connect with nature, gain skills & experience, support conservation & sustainability efforts, engage with the local community, foster curiosity through environmental education, make lifelong friendships, and so much more.
“The Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to be and volunteer. It’s also a family composed of staff, other volunteers, and members – all who care about the Garden. I’m proud to be one of the many volunteers who have helped the Garden function and grow,” shares Martha Ward, BGO volunteer.
The Volunteer Orientation & Recruitment event promises an insightful look into the various volunteer opportunities available at the Garden, including education, sustainability, gardening, event hospitality, community outreach, and more. The event will conclude with a guided tour of the Garden.
