Wanted: Bird Care Volunteers!

Have experience with exotic birds? Want to make a difference in your local community at one of Florida’s historic gems? Not scared of some dirty work and heavy lifting? Spend a couple of hours one or more morning or afternoon a week learning and getting to know others with the same passion. 

Email to request a bird care volunteer application.

Join us

Be a part of historic Sunken Gardens transformation from a roadside attraction to an educational and cultural center. By bringing the diversity of your own background, skills and education, you will be helping protect and preserve this historic garden, increasing its impact on the community through diverse educational and horticultural experiences that provide opportunities for our community to enjoy the garden.

Your volunteer experience will enable you to meet new friends with similar interests, participate in unique projects, learn new skills or gain work experience.

Volunteer opportunities include Garden Assistants that help maintain the beautiful grounds, Garden Docents to lead visitors on guided tours, and Special Event Assistants to help develop, promote and work during events. Or, tell us how you would like to help.

Volunteers need only a love of nature and a willingness to learn. Specific training will be provided.
