Volunteer with Willow Bend

Garden Volunteers

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


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.

Social Media Volunteers

Do you love taking pictures, making short videos, or writing about your experiences? We are seeking volunteers to attend our events and create engaging content, including short videos and blog posts. You can participate in one event or as many as you'd like! Visit our blog to gain insight into our posts and needs.
