Hoyt Arboretum is recruiting volunteer tour guides for the 2020 tour season! Tour guides lead informative and entertaining 60-minute tours through the Arboretum’s global tree collection to teach visitors about Hoyt Arboretum, its trees and plants, and the arboretum’s role in global conservation. Public tours are scheduled every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from April through October. This volunteer position is a great opportunity for individuals with an interest in trees, plants, and conservation to expand their knowledge while developing public speaking and visitor engagement skills.

Join us at the Public Tour Guide volunteer training on February 15 to learn more about Hoyt’s public tour program. During the training, volunteers will learn best practices for tour guides including communication, visitor engagement, and tour content and become familiar with resources for expanding knowledge of trees and plants found in Hoyt Arboretum. New Tour Guides will be required to participate in a follow-up small group training session prior to leading their own tours.

Registration is required. Please sign up here.
