Volunteering at the Monk Botanical Gardens

The Monk Botanical Gardens depends heavily on volunteers. And our volunteers—hundreds of them—enjoy working at the Gardens. From weeding and clearing brush, to trimming trees and bushes, to planting the gardens and building and maintaining our structures, to helping with events and committee work…volunteers perform thousands of hours of service that are helping us grow the Gardens into Central Wisconsin’s first and finest botanical garden.

If you would like to inquire about volunteer opportunities or have questions, please contact us at volunteer@monkgardens.org.
