Volunteer


See you in 2018!
 
A huge thank you to everyone who made 2017 the best season yet at the Arboretum at Flagstaff! From Docent tours of the gardens & school field trips, to the Butterfly House, our numerous big events like the Soiree, Pumpkin Walk & concerts, building trails, weeding and planting-we truly couldn’t have done this all without our wonderful volunteers. Arboretum volunteers donated 3500 hours in 2017- Wow!!
We’ll be recruiting for volunteers in 2018 starting in January. We open for the season on April 15th, but Docent Training starts in early Spring and we will have group garden clean-up days starting in March.

Contact Volunteer Coordinator Shannon Benjamin shannon.benjamin@thearb.org for more information and/or to sign up for any of these opportunities.
