Opportunities for Teens at the Desert Botanical Garden

Teens, aged 14 - 18, can volunteer as a Teen Volunteer and/or in the Teens in the Garden (TIG) program.

Both of these programs are underway for the 2013-14 school year; we are looking forward to an exciting year of learning, growing, and sharing. If you are a teen or know a teen, 14 – 18 years old, that is interested in gaining experience at the Desert Botanical Garden, mark your calendars for August 2014 when we will accept new applications.

TEENS IN THE GARDEN (TIGs)

Running from September to May each year, this program is based on college-readiness and citizen science for high school students, aged 14 – 18.

Each Saturday, TIGs collect citizen science data and work in groups to develop citizen science kits to distribute to local grade school classrooms. Citizen science refers to scientific research conducted by amateur scientists. This program provides TIGs with valuable experiences and skills including: research acquisition, interviewing, collaborative discussion, leadership, interfacing with technology, and public speaking.

TEEN VOLUNTEERS

If you are interested in volunteering at festivals and events, then becoming a Garden teen volunteer is for you! The Garden is a wonderful place for teens, ages 14 - 18, to get experience working with plants, animals, and people, all while working towards community service requirements.

For more information about these programs, please email teenvol@dbg.org or call 480 481.8123.

Visiting the Garden

The great weather, spring break and the Chihuly in the Garden exhibition are all helping the Garden to sell out. You most likely will be turned away if we are sold out and you don’t have tickets. 

If you plan to visit the Garden, we strongly encourage you to purchase your tickets ahead of time online. It’s fast, easy and you have three options for tickets:

1) you can print them at home and bring them with you;
2) you can write down your confirmation number and bring it with you to the admission window;
3) you can give your name at the admission window and we can look up the order. 

We hope you will visit soon.
