Website Special Announcements - DO NOT MOVE ME!

Desert Botanical Garden will close at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2. Please plan accordingly.

Teen Volunteers

Gain experience working closely with Garden staff.

Teens in the Garden (TIG) Program  

Know any teens 13 to 18 years old who are interested in a fun and interactive plant-science adventure? Let them know about this priceless opportunity to gain experience and work closely with Garden staff and volunteers. During monthly gatherings throughout the school year teens will learn first-hand what careers and experiences await them at botanical gardens. With the help of experienced plant biologists, the teen team will contribute to an international scientific database – giving them skills and experiences needed for college and beyond. 

Teens and their parents are invited to a free informational meeting: 

  • Saturday, August 5, 2017 from 1 - 2 p.m.
  • For more information or to RSVP for the meeting, please email lmarks@dbg.org or call 480 481.8123.
