We Love Our Volunteers
The Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

Volunteers have made the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens all that it is today. This year alone, our volunteers have put in more than 8,000 hours of work, that is equal to the help of four full-time employees! 

Just last week, we held our Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our volunteers who have donated 40 hours or more of their time. This annual gathering allows Gardens Staff and Board Members to express our immense gratitude for the dedication, cooperation, hard work, and creative energies of our volunteers.

Become a Volunteer!
We invite you to become a part of our family of volunteers and help the Gardens continue to thrive.
