Volunteers are a key part of our mission at Reeves-Reed Arboretum. In 2012, volunteers gave over 3,000 hours of service at the Arboretum! We welcome newcomers to the area as well as those just discovering the Arboretum, experienced gardeners and those willing to learn. Students fulfilling community service hours, retirees, and clubs as well as friends, all are welcome. Seasonal as well as year round projects are available.
