Association of Rice Alumni - Austin says
The Rice Young Alumni is scheduled to help with horticulture projects at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on the morning of Saturday, March 12, 2016. The group will head to lunch afterwards.

Horticulture volunteers are encouraged to wear clothing suitable for outdoor yard work (closed-toed shoes, cool and comfortable clothing, and sun protection). You can bring gloves if you'd like or we have some here you can use, but no need to bring tools. You will receive on the job training and will work alongside our experienced staff and volunteers, 8:30-Noon with a short break time inside midway through. Typical activities for gardens volunteers include plant propagation, weeding, watering, mulching, raking and garden installations. Working in our gardens is a great way to learn about native Texas plants and support our mission.

Samantha Elkinton, the horticulture volunteer coordinator, or Horticulturist Sierra DaSilva, will be prepared to greet and orient you on your first day. A special note about parking: when you arrive before 9 you'll find that the main gate to the Center is still locked. We don't open that public gate until 9 am. So you'll want to drive past the locked gate and enter at the "service entrance" which is the next and only other entrance after the main gate. You may park in the visitor lot or the volunteer/staff lot and meet in K on this map: http://www.wildflower.org/map/Wildflower_Main_Map_web.pdf.
