Gardenkeeper

Butterfly Garden

Gardenkeepers are vital to the development & care of the gardens and landscape. Volunteers enjoy working alongside one another and with staff and in sharing their knowledge with visitors. Volunteers focus on gardening with natives to replace non-native invasive species, such as Barberry & Amur Honeysuckle. The aim is to increase plant diversity to provide for the habitat needs of wildlife while also beautifying the gardens, rocky outcroppings and forests. Volunteers learn about native plants, invasives & plant-insect-wildlife interactions.
