The San Antonio Botanical Garden serves as a 38-acre tranquil escape, living classroom, research and conservation facility, and entertainment venue where art and cultural experiences come to life. 

As Conservation and Volunteer Programs Specialist, I coordinated adult conservation and cultural programs relevant to current exhibits. The conservation program consists of around 100 annual programs, in addition to regular Garden-wide and collaborative programs. I also managed the volunteer program consisting of 200 active volunteers using the GivePulse system. 


I regularly taught programs, including (but not limited to):

Bizarre Botany Series

Guided Tours walking tours through the Garden and paired with a themed cocktail.

Nefarious Plants, Promiscuous Plants, The Fungus Among Us, Amazing Adaptations
