Volunteer Engagement

Making it a Bit Better

Bok Tower Gardens’ volunteers support our exceptional visitor experience, excellence in horticulture, and leadership in conservation. Volunteers can be found throughout the Gardens working alongside our staff in many areas, and our volunteer roles fall into one of two categories: Visitor Engagement or Horticulture. From Visitor Engagement roles at our Visitor Center, retail locations, educational programs, and our historic home to Horticulture roles in our nursery, conservation program, and gardens, our volunteers are important partners whose time and talents extend what we can provide for our visitors.

Please review our Volunteer Opportunity Directory to discover the volunteer roles we are currently looking to fill. You can view each volunteer role description and shift times making it easy to find the best fit for you.

Join Us

Every day our volunteers and staff work together to share Edward Bok’s gift of the Gardens with our visitors in hopes that they will be inspired to make the world a bit better or more beautiful in their own way. When you are ready to join us in this endeavor, please submit your volunteer application, and our Volunteer Engagement Manager will contact you with next steps.
