Volunteers help with a wide variety of projects, many of which are seasonal. They include plant surveying and seed collection; cleaning, sorting, and banking seeds; rare plant curation and propagation; and general greenhouse and office help. Training in the field is provided. Volunteers must be 18 years or older.

If you’re interested in volunteering with another aspect of Red Butte Garden, contact our Volunteer Coordinator,Meghan Eames. Or check out the Volunteer page.

Plant Natives, Pull Invasives: Your land, however small, can be an important piece of habitat for native plants, pollinators, and other wildlife. As our cities expand outward, eating up true native habitats, these oases become critical to support native populations.

What to Plant:
Gardening for Native Bees in Utah from USU Cooperatve Extension
Native Gardening from Intermountain Native Plant Growers Association

*Red Butte Garden offers an extensive supply of native plants during our Spring and Fall Plant Sales. Find out more on our Plant Sale page.

What to Pull:
Utah’s Noxious Weed List from the Utah Weed Control Association

Donate: We can’t do it without your support. Making a donation to the Garden supports our efforts to protect and restore threatened plant communities throughout Utah. [Donate Button!]
