Are you interested in helping people connect with the natural world? Want to deepen your knowledge of local flora and fauna, environmental education, water-wise gardening, and the cultural connections between people and plants? Consider becoming a docent at Tucson Botanical Gardens.

After completing training, docents lead tours, present educational outreach programs, staff Discovery Carts, assist with horticultural therapy programs, teach Gardens Signature Classes, participate in developing and refining new educational programs, and help visitors make lasting memories at the Gardens.
