Vallarta Botanical Gardens & Peace Corps: Students Learn About Orchid Conservation

Neil Gerlowski - Vallarta Botanical Gardens
April 1, 2014

The Vallarta Botanical Gardens welcomes a new full-time volunteer from the Peace Corps for a two-year term of service starting on June 2, 2014.

The Peace Corps is a volunteer program run by the US government with a mission to promote peace and friendship while helping others. The volunteer who will be working with us will be focused on environmental education and the conservation of our local natural resources at the community level.

We look forward to the help of this volunteer not just to continue the educational programs already in place at the Gardens, but especially to allow us to provide outreach into our community like never before.

Projects such as assisting with the creation and support of school and community gardens allows us to connect plants to people in a meaningful way to foster environmental consciousness and a strong ethic of conservation.

The service of a long-term committed volunteer allows us to develop such programming in a more focused manner and provide the continuity for meaningful, measurable results over the course of time.

When students visit the Vallarta Botanical Gardens for a day they can be deeply inspired, when they take a piece of the Gardens back to their classrooms and communities they can become deeply-rooted to a dedication to the natural world.

We are always looking for other volunteers for a number of exciting and fulfilling service opportunities at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. We offer two formal volunteer trainings on the first Saturday of December and January. Those who don't want to wait until December may contact us to shadow another volunteer and discover how they would like to get involved with our work.

We thank our several Canadian friends for their volunteer service to the Gardens this past year and take the opportunity to give a special shout-out to Anne-Marie Haynes, Ann Savio, Carla Piringer, and Chris and Peggy Mills.

When it comes to volunteer service, remember, the life you touch most may be your own!
