We are seeking docents to support our mission of education and outreach and to enhance the visitor experience at the SCBG. Orientation will introduce attendees to our various weekday and weekend docent opportunities and will equip participants with information about the SCBG’s history, mission, garden spaces and features, as well as techniques for communicating effectively with the public. Register for one of the following Saturdays: April 13, June 15, August 17 or October 19

These tours last approximately an hour and focus on the Garden’s history, development, and seasonal highlights. From the Camellia Trail to the Butterfly Garden, there is always something of interest and beauty to see. Register for an upcoming tour on May 4, June 1, July 6 or September 7
