Bickelhaupt Arboretum has the greatest volunteers in the world. The arboretum wouldn’t be able to do all it does and offer this great resource to the public, free of charge, without our dedicated volunteers.
We’re always looking for more volunteers to add to our group.
Opportunities are available for gardeners in the butterfly, country, herb, rock, rose, waterfall and wildflower gardens, as well as for tours, assisting with educational programs and special events.
Because we want gardens of display quality, volunteers work in teams for each of the collections, spending one to two hours a week on the care of "their" garden. When experts are on the grounds, volunteers are invited to tour with the guests and learn more about each of the gardens.
Volunteers also lead tours, do filing, catalog books, accession plants, help children with crafts, answer the phone as plant partners ("How do I get rid of moles?"), teach classes (Herbs for Fun and Flavor), work with staff on maintenance and assist at special events.
Flexible hours and the opportunity to work with others with the same interests are just a couple of the reasons for the success of our volunteer program.
