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.

The next training will run March 3 - April 28, 2018.

Thank you for your interest!
