Hoyt Arboretum is recruiting volunteer tour guides for the 2024 public tour season! Tour guides lead an informative and engaging 60-minute tour along the Arboretum’s trails to teach visitors about Hoyt Arboretum, its trees and plants, and the Arboretum’s role in global conservation. Public tours are scheduled on Sundays 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 Sunday, March 17 from 9am-12pm to learn more about Hoyt’s public tour program. During the training, volunteers will learn best practices for leading public tours including communication, visitor engagement, group management, 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 follow-up training sessions prior to leading their own tours at the Arboretum.

Registration is required. Please sign up here.
