There are many opportunities to get involved, so find the one that’s right for you:

Visitor Engagement Volunteer: Work with the public and our front line staff to provide a memorable, meaningful experience for our visitors! Visitor Engagement Volunteers help with:

  • Daily operations, such as greeting visitors as they arrive, helping with wayfinding, and recommending things to see and do around the gardens and galleries
  • Event assistance, helping with ticket-taking, helping with craft and program activities, and assisting with crowd control

Interpretive Volunteers: Help interpret our collections both inside the galleries and outside in the gardens for school groups and visitors. Interpretive Volunteers help with:

  • Engaging students grades K-8 grade through hands-on interactive workshops that connect Museum collections and STEM learning in fun and exciting ways
  • Interpreting Heritage’s collections to community and groups by teaching with objects, giving informal talks, and leading interactive tours through our galleries and gardens
  • Assisting with greeting and welcoming adult and student group tour customers upon arrival

Horticulture Department: This opportunity will allow you to work in the gardens doing various duties, including weeding, mulching, fertilizing, pruning, propagation, and plant documentation. As a Horticulture Volunteer you will help Heritage maintain our beautiful public gardens enjoyed by all who visit.
