Tropical Horticulture Garden Work Day
October 18, 2017 - September 14, 2018
The National Tropical Botanical Garden on the South Shore of Kauai is seeking environmental & conservation minded volunteers to aid in the care and maintenance of our unique living collections. We offer service options for visiting volunteers in McBryde Garden, which is a veritable botanical ark of tropical flora and home to the largest ex situ collection of native Hawaiian flora in existence. Submerge yourself in the tropical flora of the vast McBryde Garden as an assistant to our Horticulture staff. This is a hands on adventure under a canopy of tropical plants. If you're seeking full contact with nature, and a light to moderately active physical experience - you're a great fit. Under the heat of the sun, or the misting light rain, you may be helping maintain one of several trails, exhibit beds, removing weeds, raking, or participate in a mulching day! Service tasks vary with weather and plant growth. This assignment is perfect for the volunteer who is flexible and willing to help where needed, knowing they're making an immediate impact on our visual appearance of our displays. A great volunteer is interested in helping where needed, come prepared for the elements, and brings their own refillable water bottle and snacks or lunch. Closed toe shoes are required.
