Join us in the gardens every Friday and Saturday between 8:00 am and noon. Activities include creating stone niches and pocket wetlands, weeding and grooming, planting and watering. You’ll learn about native plant communities and gardening strategies, and meet visitors from across the Flagstaff community and beyond. We provide tools and supplies; you bring gloves, sun protection, and water. Please contact Susan Lamb, garden coordinator, at susan@susanlamb.net, for more information

Education Program Volunteers

Science Saturday Volunteers: On the first Saturday of every month from 9:30-11:30AM Willow Bend hosts a fun, free, hand-on community event called Science Saturday (more info: Science Saturday). We are in need of motivated volunteers, who have experience, or an interest to work with kids and families to assist with this program.  Volunteer roles include, setting up, assisting young participants with the different activities, and cleaning up after each event. Volunteers are also needed during the planning and preparation stage, where you can get creative and come up with your own activities and ideas for the different themes. Volunteers can attend one or as many Science Saturday events as they want!



Blog Volunteers:  Do you love taking pictures? Making short videos? Writing about your experiences? We are looking for volunteers to attend our events and create short videos and blog posts about their experiences. You can attend one, or as many events as you want! Visit our blog to get an idea of our posts and needs.




INTERNSHIPS: We are currently not offering any academic internships. Please visit our website for any updates.
