Various gardens provide beautiful aesthetics and educational opportunities throughout the property. Gardeners are needed to aid in planting, watering, and weeding of our butterfly, hummingbird, raspberry patch, and other native plant gardens located on the grounds. Our butterfly garden includes a wide variety of wildflowers. These flowers need to be labeled on stakes adjacent to the patch so that all visitors can learn which species to plant to attract wildlife to their own gardens. Layout maps of plants in each garden also need to be sketched out for future reference. A knowledge of plants and gardening is helpful, but not necessary. Volunteers can work at their own pace to relax and enjoy the experience of creating a beautiful garden.
If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity or would like to learn more, please contact us at the Sharon Audubon Center.
