From leading tours to tending the gardens to facilitating special events, community members and students provide critical support for everything we do at the Arboretum. No matter where your interests lie, we have a volunteer opportunity that is just right for you. Every October, volunteers (especially service organizations) are invited to be part of our Pumpkin Festival team! During the summer, we need people to help provide educational activities and serve as garden guides in Childhood’s Gate Children’s Garden.

All volunteers must complete and submit our application and receive an orientation to our program from our volunteer coordinator. Once you have submitted your application, you will be contacted about the next step in this process. If you would like to be informed about all volunteer opportunities, please contact
