This is a group of enthusiastic 8-14 year olds eager to connect with nature and keen for opportunities to actively engage with our world. Adventure Ambassadors will play an integral role in selecting fun and exciting activities for the Children’s Adventure Garden. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to develop and expand their leadership skills as well as grow as a contributing member in the community.


Ambassadors will visit the garden each season and tell their friends and families about all the exciting things taking place in the Children’s Adventure Garden. Ambassadors will be the first to try out new Plant Lab Experiments, puppet shows, and programs and will provide feedback to ensure the most fun, educational experience for all guests.


Ambassadors will receive name tag to identify their important role in the Children’s Adventure Garden. Ambassadors will also be given priority to special events in the Children’s Adventure Garden including previews of upcoming Children’s Adventure Garden learning experiences and opportunities to provide feedback. A seasonal eNewsletter will give a first look at what will be going on in the Children’s Adventure Garden and will feature select Ambassadors in our Spotlight section.

Time Commitment

Special Adventure Ambassador events will be held quarterly. During the school year, Ambassador events will be held on weekends and there may be weekday opportunities during the Summer. The Children’s Adventure Garden Public Program staff will hold an annual party during which Ambassadors and guests will be given exclusive access to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden after public hours to celebrate and thank Ambassadors for their contribution to the community.
