Join Us As a Wild Gardens Volunteer

The Wild Gardens of Acadia are a unique educational resource displaying over 400 native plants in 13 habitats that are representative of what visitors might see in the park.

During summer and fall months, docents greet visitors at the Wild Gardens, orient them to the habitats, answer questions, point families toward activities geared toward young visitors, and highlight any interesting features or flowers. Training is provided, and weekend and weekday volunteer opportunities are available.

Becoming a docent may help you gain knowledge about the Wild Gardens of Acadia and its plants, increase your understanding of the importance of native plants to Acadia’s ecosystems, and help with native plant identification as you enjoy the park. It’s also a great opportunity to share your enthusiasm for Acadia and the Wild Gardens with a variety of park visitors and volunteers.
