Volunteer Opportunities

Nature and science rooted in the culture of community.  

The “GROW" collaborative between the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas offers meaningful experiences through education, volunteer, and membership opportunities that enrich personal growth and sustain our planet. For all who yearn to learn and grow, join us for innovative and engaging learning and volunteer service opportunities in a uniquely natural, but nearby location in the heart of the city. You, too, will be inspired to appreciate plants and sustain our planet.

Mission Statement: To provide meaningful experiences founded in education and community that engage and inspire people to appreciate plants and sustain our planet.

BRIT Reads Book Club

If you love to read and you're passionate about botany, natural history, sustainability, and other similar topics, then join us the third Monday of each month for the BRIT Reads Book Club. This informal group meets from noon - 1 pm in the BRIT Library. Bring your lunch and bring a friend and come tell us what you thought about our book of the month. No time to read but still want to hear what people have to say about a particular book? No problem! We'd love to have you!
