Garden Guide Training

Come for a training to join our group of Garden Guides that share the beauty of Betty Ford Alpine Gardens with visitors from around the world. No experience necessary, just a great attitude and desire to engage. Garden Guides are a vital part in creating a deeper experience for connecting our visitors with the collections, history, horticulture and conservation of the Gardens. Instruction and refreshments provided.

Public garden tours occur on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:30am, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Private tours vary on days and time.

RSVP to let us know you’re joining. Whether you’re new to leading tours, interested in the program or want to brush up on your skills, we look forward to seeing you at the Education Center for this training!
