Great work environment!


A vital part of the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum’s visitor experience and revenue stream is Norrie’s Gift and Garden Shop, staffed completely by long-term volunteers. We are looking for additional helpers to work with a group of dedicated and garden-loving volunteers. In addition to performing general shop procedures, Norrie's volunteers provide Arboretum guests with meet & greet, admissions, gift and plant sales assistance.

This is a great opportunity for someone with prior experience in retail, who would enjoy working with plants and nature-related gift items, and who wants to make a difference in the community. All proceeds from the shop support the Arboretum and its mission.

Please consider this fun and worthwhile opportunity. Applications for all volunteering opportunities can be found at:


  • Retail / Sales
  • Marketing & Communications (Mar/Com)
  • Gardening
  • Environmental Education
  • Community Outreach
