We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals who have the time to be a part of our Butterfly Gardening team. We are looking for outdoor enthusiasts who want to learn about caring for butterflies and helping with guests. We need work/stay folks to help us raise caterpillars, feed adult butterflies, and work in our garden to maintain host plants. We also need people to help man our hotel reception desk, to charge entrances to the Butterfly Garden and help serve guest breakfasts. We also need general assistance around the property, and we might ask you to participate in group meals for volunteers. Normal schedule is 3 days in the hotel, and 2 days in the butterfly garden with 2 days off. If you come as a couple or a pair, we try to schedule you so that you can share at least one day off together as the schedule allows.
We prefer volunteers who are English/Spanish bilingual.
When you are working at the reception desk, there is some potential to make a small amount of money through booking tours. We can host up to 4 work exchange positions, and the exchange is dormitory style accommodation for around 32 hours per week. We do provide basic staples for you to cook your own food.
