More than just a place to hike and admire scenic beauty, Hoyt Arboretum is a place to learn about the natural world. Our educational programs teach biological fundamentals, skills and crafts, and habitats and ecosystems.

All education opportunities require an enthusiasm for teaching, a love of the outdoors, and curiosity about the natural world.

Nature Educators

Nature Educators introduce youth and families to ecology and the importance of trees through fun, hands-on activities at a variety of drop-in programs. Volunteers gain valuable experience working with children and teaching environmental education in an outdoor setting.

Tree Time! Volunteers

Tree Time! volunteers introduce preschool age children to the wonders of nature through stories and nature walks. Tree Time! is currently scheduled Monday and Saturday mornings year-round.

Public Tour Guide

A great opportunity to meet people and develop your public speaking skills, Tour Guides lead 60-minute public tours and scheduled private tours of the Arboretum from early spring through autumn. The position requires some very basic knowledge of trees and plants, but most importantly the desire to learn more. We offer continuing botanical learning opportunities, and request an ongoing commitment during the public tour season.
