Garden Volunteer Program

Volunteers work to nurture a living exhibit that teaches about the benefits of native plants and provides design inspiration. Volunteers work at the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Dept. Headquarters Nix Native Plant Garden including weeding, mulching, pruning and more. This is a great opportunity for garden clubs, neighborhoods or church groups.  

Gardening volunteer days are Mondays and Tuesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (weather dependent). Gardening experience is helpful but not required. Volunteers may work alone or in groups. Adults only please.

Please read the Garden Volunteer job description.
