Now is your chance to sign up to be a volunteer on the day of the Tour.

At each home, there will be two volunteers in the morning and two in the afternoon: a “greeter” and a “homeowner assistant”.  Last year the 40+ volunteers said they had very positive experiences.

In addition to meeting people, getting to know people better, and the satisfaction of sharing native plants with others, volunteers receive a St. Louis Native Plant Garden Tour t-shirt and are able to visit the gardens for free during the half-day they are not working.  If you are interested, we encourage you to sign up early for the limited number of slots.

If you have any questions about this volunteer opportunity, please contact Dawn at 314-401-9980.

    • Dawn,

      Wow!

      Is that total volunteers or just those who signed up through St. Louis Wild Ones?

      • It’s a combination of the paper forms that were filled out on Wednesday night, some probably from the blog post update email and some folks from Mitch’s list that I forwarded the link to.

        Now at 17 🙂
