    Information Specialists provided relevant information and genuine, courteous service to all visitors to Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street. Located  in the Visitor Center and Children’s Garden Visitor Center, at the Information Desk and at a mobile Information Cart, this position is critical to the visitor’s experience at the Gardens.

    Excellent customer service and communications skills and an ability to handle visitor issues in a positive and proactive manner. Enthusiasm for Denver Botanic Gardens and all it has to offer.
    Upon completion of training, Information Specialist volunteers are required to commit to a minimum of two shifts per month. Shifts are approximately 3 to 3-1/2 hours each, and are available 7 days per week most of the year.
  • “I have become a Denver Botanic Gardens addict. I just cannot get enough of the wonderful people, the fun and the education I receive in one of the most spectacular settings I know. I call my time at the Gardens “therapy for my spirit and soul."

    - Lynn, Volunteer
  • "I have been a volunteer for four years at the Gardens. There is nothing in the world that is better for the soul than working outside in horticulture, especially in the mornings. The peaceful quiet, the sound and songs of the animals, the dew on the plants, and the satisfaction when visitors ask questions or give compliments."

    - Tonny, Volunteer
