The time and skills volunteers provide are critical to our work as a conservation garden. In exchange, we offer fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities in conservation, education, garden maintenance, visitor services, and more.

If you would like to be notified of future volunteer opportunities, please fill out this interest form. We will reach out when additional volunteer opportunities become available!

For Current Volunteers

Volunteer Portal

Log your hours, sign up for shifts, see your schedule, or update your contact information.

As of September 2023, there is a new portal for logging hours and signing up for shifts called VicNet. The new site looks a bit different but has all the same functionality as the Volgistics volunteer portal. An overview of the changes, as well as a video tutorial for using VicNet, can be viewed by clicking here. If you have any trouble or questions after reviewing this site, feel free to contact David Michaud.
