Keeler Gardens’ First Volunteer Orientation

Volunteer to Connect with Nature

Keeler Gardens is growing – plants, habitats, and programs. With this grow comes quite a bit of work and we could really use your help. Are you looking for a way to connect with nature? Maybe you are looking for a chance to take a break in a soothing setting while giving back to the community; or you are hoping to make your thumb a little greener. If you have a desire to learn and share skills we have an opportunity for you…volunteer with us at Keeler Gardens.
