Docent Application
San Francisco Botanical Garden docents engage with visitors from the Bay Area and beyond, telling stories about the unique plants collected and grown here, and about the importance of plants in our lives. If you'd like to join this awesome team of plant (and people) lovers, tell us a bit about your skills, experience and related education here.

Please submit your application by September 4, 2017 for the Fall Training.

Thank you for your interest!
