Volunteering

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 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 [email protected].

We believe that people of color and LGBTQ community must be a part of the Gardens’ team for us to succeed and serve the entire community. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
