2017 Native Plant Garden Tour

Event Chair: Dawn Weber

DETAILS:

The St. Louis Audubon Society and Wild Ones St. Louis Chapter are once again partnering to present the annual St. Louis Native Plant Garden Tour on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Featuring ten gardens selected for their variety of styles and maturity, this year's tour is centered in west St. Louis County, including homes in Ballwin, Chesterfield, Manchester, and Town & Country. 

Like last year, we will rely on volunteer help at each of the homes on the day of the Tour.  Review the volunteer responsibilities and benefits below.    If you are interested in volunteering just complete and submit the Volunteer Registration Form.

With your help, this year’s tour will inspire even more people in our community to use native plants to bring more birds, bees and butterflies into their own yards!

Volunteer Responsibilities the Day of the Tour  (September 16, 2017)

Arrive on time and check in with the homeowner(s)
- AM shift – 8:30 to 12:30
- PM shift – 12:15 to 4:00

Receive and change into your 2017 St. Louis Native Plant Garden Tour t-shirt

During each shift, we have 2 volunteer roles to fill  - Greeters and Homeowner Assistants

We are looking for volunteers for a single shift only, AM or PM, so that you are able to tour the gardens for free during the half day when you are not volunteering.

Greeter responsibilities

- Station yourself near the best entry point, according to the homeowner.
- Welcome people
- Check that each party/group has a Tour booklet (their “ticket”). If not, explain that advance registration was required. In the event they are a “relative, friend or neighbor,” welcome them. You are not a policeman.
- Direct them to the garden entrance(s) or “route”, as identified by the homeowner.

Homeowner Assistant responsibilities

- Help ID plants, species or beds, at the discretion of the homeowner.
- Provide any other help needed, according to the homeowner.

Thanks for volunteering, we can't do it without you! 

!Important! To volunteer at this event you must agree to the LIABILITY WAIVER & PHOTO RELEASE.  

Tour gardens may include wet or slippery surfaces, steps, or other trip hazards and other situations which the tour hosts have attempted to minimize and/or call to your attention. Your participation in the Tour recognizes the minor, but real, risk of these and other potential situations.

By submitting my volunteer signup form, I agree to hold harmless and indemnify St. Louis Audubon Society, Wild Ones St. Louis Chapter, Wild Ones Natural Landscapers, tour partners, sponsors and hosts, their agents, volunteers and employees from any and all liability, actions, causes of actions, claims, demands for suits whatsoever resulting from or arising out of personal injuries, loss of, or damage to property, or involving any impairment of, or damage to any right because of or in any way related to the parties above resulting from my participation in the 2017 Native Plant Garden Tour, excepting claims arising out of willful misconduct or gross negligence. I also authorize any photos or video taken of myself, and/or the participant, to be used wholly or in part, in perpetuity for any business purpose by the Event Coordinators. I also agree that this Liability Waiver and Photo Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the state of Missouri and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, I agree that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
