Congratulations to Judy Bergauer, the 2018 Naples Botanical Garden Visitor Choice Award Winner! 

We are proud of Judy. Besides completing all of her Provisional responsibilities to become an NGC member, she managed to earn a Volunteer of the Year Award from Naples Botanical Garden.  

She said, “I am humbled and honored to receive the inaugural year 2018 Visitor Choice Award from the Naples Botanical Garden. There are so many ways I enjoy my volunteer service at NBG.  In my roles as group tour guide, docent and information station representative, I welcome and educate visitors about the amazing collection of plants, our conservation efforts, and partnerships as well as our special exhibits.  I also serve on the Visitor and Education Committee, a subcommittee of the Board of Directors of NBG.”   

“Naples Botanical Garden provides a wide range of opportunities to serve as a volunteer.  I encourage Naples Garden Club members to get involved in our local treasure.  Not only will you learn about tropical plants from around the world, but you will also gain many new volunteer friends.”
