Natural Lands Now Accepting Applications For 2020 Stoneleigh Ambassador Volunteer Program

Natural Lands is now accepting applications for its 2020 Stoneleigh Ambassador Volunteer Program to be greeters, tour guides and special event helpers for the 42-acre Stoneleigh botanical garden in Villanova, Delaware and Montgomery counties.
The deadline for applications is December 31.
“I love being an Ambassador at Stoneleigh,” shared volunteer Marlene Campbell. “It is such a serene place. I feel a wonderful sense of calm when I am here, which is hard to achieve in the 24/7 connected world we live in. I enjoy the friendships I have formed with the other volunteers and I love meeting visitors and telling them about the history and beauty of Stoneleigh.”
Stoneleigh Ambassadors participate in five, half-day training sessions (held annually in late winter) at Stoneleigh in which they learn everything from the history of Stoneleigh and Natural Lands, to native plants and ecological horticulture, to guest relations practices.
Upon graduation from the program, Ambassadors volunteer their time welcoming visitors to the garden, leading tours, and supporting special events. They commit to serving at least two, four-hour shifts each month at Stoneleigh. (Shifts are available April through November, Tuesday through Sunday, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm.)
The Stoneleigh Ambassador program is part of Natural Lands’ Force of Nature® volunteer program, which connects people to the outdoors through dedicated service to Natural Lands.
