Volunteer Opportunities

The Montrose Botanic Gardens are administered and maintained solely by volunteers. Our community would not have this resource if it weren’t for the tireless efforts of many hands doing a variety of jobs. Whether you are interested in a one-time event or project, or a recurring commitment, we can find a place for you!

In return for your time, you will gain knowledge about gardens and gardening in the high desert, make new friends, enjoy the out of doors, and perhaps even get your hands dirty! Our volunteers are our greatest asset! How can you help? No prior experience needed! We provide on the job training! Come ready to have fun! You don’t need to be a member to volunteer (except for serving on the Board). 


For additional information or to volunteer email:

Please include contact information as well as your volunteer interests in your email.  


Thank you to all of our volunteers, past, present and future!
