There are various ways to leave a positive impact on our community volunteering with the Longview Arboretum. If you love gardening and learning about new plants and horticultural techniques, you can volunteer in our gardens with the guidance of our experienced staff gardeners. If you have a passion for seeing children learn about the natural environment, contact us to learn more about the summer camp offerings. Volunteer at the Nature Center to welcome guests to the Arboretum or volunteer in our gift shop, "The Gifting Tree", the proceeds of which help fund efforts in the gardens. The Arboretum is constantly hosting events in the gardens, such as the spring and fall concert series. Volunteers receive free admission to many events! The Arboretum is blessed with a regular volunteer base to welcome new volunteers and help them feel like part of the family!

Mission Statement

The mission of Longview Arboretum and Nature Center is to build and maintain a public garden and Arboretum, which celebrates the unique natural beauty of East Texas and is committed to raising environmental awareness through education, horticulture, conservation, and research.

Description

The Longview Arboretum and Nature Center, in partnership with the City of Longview, has cultivated undevelopable land into a destination point for locals and tourists to enjoy the natural beauty unique to East Texas. Nestled in trees and gentle hills along Grace Creek, the 26 acres sits in the heart of Longview a short car ride from Downtown. Adjacent to Maude Cobb Convention Center, the gardens attract birds, butterflies, wildlife, and indigenous flora and fauna. In 2022, the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association designated the Longview Arboretum and Nature Center as a Great Texas Public Space. The Arboretum hosts concerts in the gardens each spring and fall. There is also a summer camp program for children to learn about and interact with nature. From planting trees to sharing a love for the natural environment with the next generation, there are so many ways to be involved in volunteerism at the Arboretum.
