Volunteer Dig Deeper

 Committed to Excellence in Public Engagement

The Arboretum relies on public support to pursue its mission, and volunteers play an essential role in our outreach. Since our centennial in 1972, volunteer docents have trained to lead the majority of free guided tours in the Arboretum landscape, and the more recent arrival of Arboretum Interpreters has further enhanced visitor interaction. Our Field Study Experiences for elementary students operate only through the assistance of volunteer guides, and our climate scientists work with Tree Spotters to amass data on plant life cycles. Discover new paths for learning and join us at an open house on February 27 for more information about volunteering at the Arboretum this spring. more »
