The Friends of the Arboretum-Riverwalk are seeking in-kind donations of plants (especially Geraniums Spring / Bulbs in Autumn) for their award-winning Arboretum & Riverwalk. They are also looking to secure donations toward the mulch needed to apply on the aggregate planting beds, which can be a cash/check donation to offset costs.
Friends of The Arboretum Program is a flexible, friendly and fun gardening program for adults, men and women, retirees, groups, families, students and corporations.
This horticulture volunteer program introduces individuals to the beautiful public gardens of the award winning JAYCEE Riverwalk Corridor & Arboretum and offers an opportunity to become involved in the maintenance and improvement of this special place.
Gardening is a healthful and rewarding experience while having fun developing gardening skills, learning about plant materials and what's involved by assisting the JCS with horticultural tasks while maintaining a variety of specialty gardens.
Volunteers can assist at Special Events with such general gardening duties, teach workshops on plant-related subjects, conduct garden tours, create flower arrangements, photograph and/or video-tape events, help maintain a trail or portion of a trail, flower bed section(s) as individuals, families, groups or organizations (clubs, camps, scouts, etc.).
The Arboretum & Riverwalkk also transverses the West Bay Secondary Greenway, which actually comprises four trails along an old Hartford, Providence, & Fiskevillel Railroad corridor. Together, the Cranston Bike Path, Warwick Bike Path, West Warwick Bikepath and Coventry Greenway create 14.2 miles of paved trail. It's the eco-epic center to the several municipalities that comprise the Kent County region (and portions of Providence County) as well.
