Become a Botanical Gardens’ Docent and Inspire All Ages!

Erin Grajek



Buffalo, NY – The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens is recruiting for the Docent Training Class of 2016. Docent training will begin on September 8 or 10, requiring a weekly commitment of Thursdays from 9am-1pm or Saturdays from 9am-1pm. The training program consists of a 6 week course that will conclude on October 18 with a graduation ceremony at the Botanical Gardens.

To become a Docent at the Botanical Gardens, organizers ask that interested individuals have a love of gardening or botany, enjoy learning and talking with the public and would like to become involved in a rewarding volunteer experience. An education background is not required, but a high level of interest and enthusiasm is.  The Docent trainees will discover in-depth information about plants in the Botanical Gardens’ collection, develop teaching and public speaking skills and learn how to instruct hands-on lessons, all while making new friends with shared interests. 

Botanical Gardens’ Docents lead tours, teach hands-on programs and help with many educational events such as field trip programs, Kids Day, Wegmans Family Days, answer visitor questions during special plant exhibits and assist education staff in programs that inspire visitors of all ages.

The Docent Training program has been altered this year as two sessions are available. Interested individuals can either be trained on Thursday or Saturday mornings. The Thursday training track is for those interested in hands-on field trips and tours, and our Saturday track is for those interested in informal programs and tours. Docent training will begin on Thursday, September 8 or Saturday, September 10, depending on the track chosen. The training program requires a weekly commitment; concluding on Thursday, October 13 or Saturday, October 15.  New docents will celebrate their achievements with a graduation ceremony on Tuesday evening, October 18 at the Botanical Gardens. These courses must be taken with the commitment to become a docent at the Botanical Gardens. For those interested in learning more about botany and gardening and cannot become a docent, Horticulture Certificate Classes are offered at the Botanical Gardens on Saturdays starting September 10. Registration is available online.

A participation cost of $25 is required for supply and printing fees.  Registration fee will be accepted in advance by clicking here or at the door on the first class day.

For more information contact Amanda Oldham, Education Assistant, at 716.827.1584 ext. 291 or aoldham@buffalogardens.com. The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens Society, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing appreciation for and knowledge of plant life and its connection to people and cultures.
