Volunteers are essential to the mission of Reeves-Reed Arboretum and are one of the greatest strengths of our organization. They provide vital support in the gardens and make special events and festivals possible. Our diverse volunteer network includes students, retirees, avid gardeners, teachers, nature lovers, corporate groups, those looking to volunteer for a few hours, and those looking to volunteer on a regular basis.
So please join us! Enjoy the beauty of the Arboretum and the camaraderie of being a part of a committed community of Arboretum volunteers!
