Tour Guides, Friends of the Public Garden

During the fall of 2017 and winter of 2018, we are recruiting volunteers to become tour guides for our 2018 season of our tour program, Untold Stories of the Public Garden, which runs weekdays May through September.

If you’re passionate about the trees, plantings, sculpture, and history in the Boston Public Garden, we’d love to have you become a volunteer guide! Training is provided and begins in February, 2018.
