Lasdon Park is calling on volunteers to contribute hours in almost every department throughout the Garden. New volunteers will be interviewed and placed according to the Garden’s needs. As these needs change, other opportunities for volunteering can become available. Please review our list of opportunities to determine your areas of interest.

If you have questions about the volunteer program at the Garden, please contact Tolly Beck, Park Horticulturist. For inquiries related to corporate volunteer groups, email Ted Kozlowski, Park Manager
