The Arboretum Assistants program consists of over 100 active volunteers who play a crucial role in maintaining the Arboretum’s collections. Volunteers are asked to give two mornings per month (9 am to noon), from March through November. These hours involve working outdoors on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays or Wednesdays working indoors.
To participate in the Arboretum Assistant program individuals need to be members of the Scott Associates (the friends organization for the Scott Arboretum) and complete the Arboretum Assistant training course. This course equips volunteers to perform a variety of gardening tasks.
The Arboretum Assistant training course is generally held annually in February. To receive notification of the next class or for an application form, contact Becky Robert, PR and Volunteer Programs Coordinator, at 610-328-8023 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
