Do you enjoy being outdoors? Want to learn about plants, gardening or wildlife, or share skills you already possess? Our garden volunteers can assist the Arboretum's horticulture staff with day to day tasks such as planting, weeding, mulching, watering, leaf raking, trail maintenance, plant sales, event set-up and tear-down. Or you can choose to focus on a particular area (herb garden, butterfly garden, rock garden) or interest (bird feeding, tree steward).

We also need educators and tour guides... be sure to check out all of our opportunities!
