The Butterfly Gardens at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site were established to promote the strength and beauty of the multitude of butterfly species native to Southwest Georgia. During the growing season, volunteers are needed to help upkeep the splendor of one of our four gardens by meticulously and thoughtfully tending to it. Duties will include weeding and removing time worn plants and replacing them with seasonal flowers provided by the National Park Service. Also, we request that our volunteers capture photos of the gardens as the season progresses. By regularly documenting our stunning gardens and exceptional butterflies, our social media followers will be able to enjoy their exquisiteness as much as we do! All equipment will be provided.
Volunteer must pass a federal background check.
