Volunteer Opportunity: Greeter at Lincoln Park Conservatory

Posted on August 27, 2018

The Lincoln Park Conservancy along with the Chicago Park District is seeking volunteers to become Greeters at the Lincoln Park Conservatory and Gardens (2391 N. Stockton Drive).

The Lincoln Park Conservatory, owned and operated by the Chicago Park District, was built in the 1890s and designed by nationally renowned architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee in collaboration with architect M.E. Bell.

As a greeter/concierge you will warmly welcome visitors to the Conservatory, providing the first impression as local visitors and tourists from around the world enter the Conservatory. The Conservatory Greeter assists with questions, directions, and helps to connect the guest with services as needed. He or she will collect information about where visitors come from and encourage them to make a suggested contribution to support the Conservatory. This donation is important to support the Conservancy’s work, including the docent and greeter programs.

Greeters must attend a one-day training on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Trainees will learn about customer service, Lincoln Park Conservancy projects, as well as the history of Lincoln Park and plants in the Conservatory. Deadline to register is Friday, September 28.

After completing the training, greeters sign up for two weekend shifts per month.

For more information, please contact Rebecca Conant, Assistant Director of Educational Programs, Lincoln Park Conservancy at (773)883-7275,
