Do you enjoy being outdoors and talking to people about plants, gardening and wildlife? Our tour guides assist with adult and schoolgroup tours of the Arboretum. Tours and programs usually last 45 minutes to an hour. Initially you'll train with one of our experienced guides until you are comfortable taking a group on your own. Times vary - our education coordinator will post tourguide needs as we receive requests and you can sign up to lead tours that fit your schedule.
