Arboretum Advisory Committee

The Ambler Arboretum Advisory Committee meets at least quarterly and its purpose is to advise and counsel the Ambler Arboretum Director. Members engage in strategic planning for the Arboretum, provide information that may impact the Arboretum, lead and assist efforts to obtain funding for the maintenance and enhancement of the gardens and grounds. In addition to helping with the annual fundraiser, members also provide leadership and commitment to the mission and the vision of Temple University Ambler and the Ambler Arboretum.

The Advisory Committee is comprised of no more than 20 external members who are interested in and passionate about the mission and vision of the Ambler Arboretum. Members often bring expertise and skills which help the Arboretum reach and maintain its goals and visions. The Ambler Arboretum Advisory Committee played a key role in the conceptualization and establishment of many of the Arboretum’s gardens as well as supporting student workers and connecting the Arboretum to the community.

If you would like to be a part of the Ambler Arboretum Advisory Committee, please contact the Arboretum Director, Kathy Salisbury at 267-468-8400 or

Currently, volunteer opportunities are available only to persons ages 18 and over.
