The Arboretum at Penn State


Members of the community as well as Penn State faculty, staff, and students provide critical support for just about everything we do here at the Arboretum, from leading tours to tending gardens to planning and facilitating special events. 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.

If you would like to be informed about all volunteer opportunities, please contact Kelly Oleynik, volunteer coordinator, at (814-867-2591).
