Group Volunteers

Corporate Groups, Schools, Private Clubs, and more!

Consider the Arboretum for your next team-building exercise or group service project. Volunteers from corporations, universities, high schools, congregations, and many other community and professional organizations contribute thousands of hours of service each year to enhance the ecological health of the Arboretum’s trails and grounds.

Request a Group Project

Group Volunteer projects take place in the great outdoors, are physically active, and require walking and working on the grounds. Examples include mulching trails, clearing invasive species, pruning, and more! All projects are based on the needs of the Arboretum at the time of your event. Staff will be present to provide instruction, guidance, tools, and safety equipment.
