Serving as a Callaway Gardens Volunteer is a terrific way to give your time and energy to a cause that is not only beneficial today, but will be for generations to come. From trail walks to education workshops to information desks and much more, available opportunities are as diverse as our volunteers themselves. Some volunteers put their existing skills to use while others prefer to broaden their horizons by learning something new – there’s something here for everyone. Volunteer hours are flexible and available every day of the year.
