Volunteer Opportunities

Nature Needs You – Join our Volunteers!

Volunteers at the Houston Arboretum

If you enjoy being outdoors or sharing your love of nature with others, consider joining the volunteers at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center. Our volunteers benefit from the training that’s provided – whether it’s learning new skills for your volunteer job or expanding your knowledge of the natural history of our area.

 

Training can be done “on-the-job” for some volunteer positions,  while others require attending a training session and possibly “shadowing” staff or an experienced volunteer. Opportunities are available both weekends and weekdays.

 

There are five categories of volunteer opportunities. To see the different volunteer jobs available please click the categories below:

Groups (Corporate, Religious, School, Service)

Special Programs

Find out how you might donate your time and talents, call the Volunteer Manager, Lynne Hester at 713-366-0375 or send an email. All volunteers are required to complete the Volunteer Application Form and Background Release forms and be invited for an interview.
