  • Work with other volunteers to water and care of existing plants on the property and to facilitate weed control efforts
  • In consultation with staff members, work as a team to raise funds and in-kind donations to complete the irrigation system, and obtain the landscaping materials and plants needed to complete the overall landscaping plans
  • Assist with installation of new landscaping plants and materials.  This may also include working with Boy Scouts as they complete their Eagle Projects

Requirements:

  • Interest in gardening, landscaping and working outdoors
  • Basic knowledge of plant care and landscape maintenance
  • Ability to represent the Museum in the community
  • Willingness to source materials and funds
