With 62 acres of natural landscape and a series of formal gardens, the grounds of Hampton provide visitors with the opportunity to experience 200 years of evolution in gardening history by simply enjoying a quiet walk among the trees and flower beds. Preserving this landscape is the responsibility of our Resource Management team, but this cannot be accomplished without the dedication of our volunteers. Volunteers are invited to help maintain the gardens and assist with invasive plant management.
Working Conditions: Work is both indoor and outdoor in nature. Volunteers should be prepared for wide extremes in weather - in the summer it can get very hot and humid, averaging between 90 and 98 degrees, and in the winter it can be very cold and blustery, averaging between 38 degrees and freezing. Bending and light lifting may be required.
Requirements: Our volunteers are required to donate eight (8) hours of time a month, generally over the course of two days. Volunteers are needed for weekdays.
