Special Events & Exhibits Volunteers

If you are interested in volunteering with us, but do not have time to commit to volunteering on a regular basis, we have plenty of one-time opportunities where we can use your help! Volunteer application forms for each event can be found on this page two months before the event starts. If you are part of a group who would like to volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 720-865-3565 or vol@botanicgardens.org for more information.

Please note: Volunteering at our Special Events does not qualify for court-ordered community service.
