Botanic Gardens at Burden offers volunteer orientation

(04/22/16) BATON ROUGE, La. – The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden will conduct a volunteer orientation on May 12 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Ione Burden Conference Center in the gardens.

The brief orientation is for new and current volunteers to help them understand the wide variety of outdoor and indoor volunteer opportunities available at the Botanic Gardens, said resident director Jeff Kuehny.

“Volunteering at the gardens provides opportunities to meet new people and make new friends, receive practical hands-on experience, share interests and hobbies with others, work in a beautiful and stimulating environment and make your community a better place to live,” Kuehny said.

“An added benefit is the satisfaction that comes with helping the gardens fulfill its mission by providing valuable services and programs for schoolchildren, gardeners, nature enthusiasts, professional horticulturists, homeowners and others in the community,” he said.

The program will be conducted by Kuehny and John Hough, vice chair of the Burden Horticulture Society.

More information is available from Kuehny at 225-763-3990.
