Join fellow Owls at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center as we work on various horticultural and beautification projects. Typical activities for garden volunteers include plant propagation, weeding, watering, mulching, raking and garden installations. Sturdy shoes and long pants suitable for outdoor work are required. We also recommend wearing a long-sleeved shirt, sunscreen, bug spray and, of course, Rice gear! You will receive on the job training and will work alongside experienced staff and volunteers. Working in our gardens is a great way to learn about native Texas plants and support our mission. A horticulture staff crew leader will be prepared to greet and orient you.

Please register by April 25 so that we can let the wildflower center know how many volunteers to expect. Please email Leonard Chan at  lnchan@alumni.rice.edu to RSVP.  If you have any questions you may also email Leonard.
