Do you love plants? Deepen your knowledge + give back to the
community: become a volunteer docent!

The UCLA Botanical Garden is an incredible 7.5 acre living museum, containing plants from all
over the world! Come learn to interpret this natural wonder for visitors. Training time will be a
combination of short lectures, garden walks, educational strategy practice, and development
of a personalized tour that you can confidently deliver to k-12 students and adults.

BENEFITS
• Support the educational mission of the Garden
• Learn more about plants
• Meet new friends
