Volunteer to care for Hoyt Arboretum’s trees and trails with a variety of hands-on stewardship projects. Projects vary for each crew depending on the needs of the season, but often include invasive species removal, weeding and mulching, trail maintenance, and more. With 189-acres and more than 6,000 trees along 12 miles of trails, volunteers are incredibly important to maintaining Hoyt Arboretum’s tree collection and trail system, and it’s a unique opportunity for volunteers to learn about and care for rare and unusual trees and plants from around the world.

Stewardship crews occur rain or shine; volunteers should come dressed for the weather including long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes.

Volunteers should plan to bring water, snacks, a face mask (extras will be available onsite; must be worn when physical distancing is not possible), and hand sanitizer.

No previous stewardship crew experience is required; training, tools, gloves, and volunteer parking passes are provided. Pre-registration is required (crew size is limited).

Volunteers will meet at the worksite; exact meeting location details will be sent out prior to the crew date.

Volunteer Age Requirement

Volunteers must be at least 16-years-old. Volunteers between the ages of 16 and 17-years-old are welcome to volunteer without an adult, but an adult needs to sign their youth waiver form.
