Volunteer at the Conservatory of Flowers

The Conservatory of Flowers invites high school students 16 years and older to become docents for their new Wicked Plants exhibit.

Wicked Plants Docents introduce visitors to the plant rogues and assassins that left their mark on history and claimed many an unfortunate victim. The Conservatory transforms the Special Exhibits Gallery into an eerie Victorian garden full of Mother Nature’s most appalling creations, all inspired by Amy Stewart’s New York Times Bestseller, Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities.

The free training for Wicked Plants docents will be held on March 30 from 5:00-6:30 p.m.

Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of two three-hour shifts per month from April until the beginning of the fall semester. Volunteers may select their shifts, which are from 10:00-1:00 or 1:00-4:00 Tuesday-Sunday.

For more information or to sign up for the program, please contact Erika Frank, Director of Volunteer Services, at (415) 637-4326 or efrank@sfcof.org.
