Volunteers play a critical role in helping the Idaho Botanical Garden grow. A dedicated group of volunteers work closely with our small staff to present a wide range of activities to the community.


Volunteers utilize their skills and knowledge to assist in a variety of ways; and there are many exciting opportunities to explore new interests and meet new people. Volunteers contribute to the Garden’s mission of cultivating, educating, and celebrating by helping with special events, participating in Garden projects from grounds maintenance to operations, and assisting with the education program in a variety of roles. Additionally, Garden visitor services volunteers assist with various office projects. The Garden welcomes volunteers of all ages including children with parents to school groups to corporate groups. Please join our Garden team and volunteer today.
