Volunteering at the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum (CHA) is one of the best ways to show your support for your local woodlands and our organization.  Volunteer tasks include front desk assistance, forest restoration and maintenance, and assistance with education programs.  As the CHA grows in the community, so will the presence and role of our Volunteers. No experience is needed, and volunteers accepted into our program will be trained on site with the expertise of CHA Staff and Board Members.

Corporate Volunteerism

Employees of an organization can volunteer as groups of up to 10 individuals to assist in our woodland and trail management.  Through corporate volunteerism, groups bond and build the teams they work in during different projects in the professional world.  Corporate volunteerism also helps keep our trails and grounds safe for program participants and visiting families.

Individual Volunteers

The Cora Hartshorn Arboretum offers opportunities for individuals to volunteer to help with woodland maintenance.  This can include learning how to identify invasive species and removing them, and show your support by volunteering during Arboretum special events throughout the year or by becoming a Weekend Warrior to provide support to staff on the weekends.
