Group/One Time/Corporate Volunteering
The Arboretum has over 1,000 volunteers that provide tremendous value with their volunteer hours on an annual basis. Our volunteers enable us to reach nearly 500,000 guests and 50,000 children per year. We encourage organizations to bring in groups to volunteer for events and projects, and we also strongly support individual employees to donate their time and talent to the Arboretum. Many companies have a volunteer match program, so you can get paid for your volunteer time, or a donation is provided to the Arboretum. You're invited to work closely with the Volunteer Coordinator to make experiences meaningful. The Arboretum welcomes groups of volunteers from local businesses, churches, civic groups and other social organizations.
No experience is necessary!
