Volunteers provide assistance to the Arboretum in many ways. Some volunteers participate in scheduled work days, working with a group to complete projects such as invasive species control, trail maintenance, collecting seed or planting trees or shrubs. Other volunteers select independent projects and may conduct a bird or plant inventory, monitor a rare species, or lead field trips. If you would like to offer your time or expertise, please contact Arboretum Director Nancy Braker or attend one of our group events. We send out announcements and reminders of our activities, so please let us know if you would like to be on our email distribution list.
Future Arboretum Volunteer Work Events:

9:00 a.m. – 12 noon. Help improve the forests of the Upper Arb by removing buckthorn and honeysuckle. Meet us at the bridge over Spring Creek along the paved trail, just down the hill from the intersection of Second and Oak Streets. See map below. Can't join us right at 9:00? We will have signs posted so you can find us at the work site. Bring your own work gloves if you have them, wear long pants and closed toe shoes (no sandals).
