Volunteer with BRIT

Volunteers are special people. At BRIT, volunteers provide a valued resource of talent and enthusiasm. We encourage our volunteers to pursue their interests, contribute their skills, and take advantage of the opportunities to learn and grow both personally and professionally. We strive to offer each volunteer a satisfying, productive, and rewarding experience - as well as cold AC, free coffee, famous botanists, a free T-shirt and plenty of smiles.


Looking for a unique volunteer opportunity? Then join us this March at Butterflies in the Garden!

Butterflies in the Garden: the Mayan Experience (March 1 - April 3) is a joint project of BRIT, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, Fort Worth Botanical Society, and the Fort Worth Garden Club. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help with both the butterfly exhibit at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden conservatory and Butterfly School Program at BRIT.
