Education is an important focus of the Dallas Arboretum's mission. Volunteers help us maintain a strong education program for both adults and children.
Adult education classes are offered year-round with course topics including horticulture, landscape design, photography, art, floral design and more. Children’s education programming takes place in the spring and fall and includes pre-school and elementary level groups. Summer day camp programs are available as well. Programs are conducted under the leadership of the staff with the assistance of volunteers. Volunteer shifts take place primarily during morning hours on weekdays only. Training is required for some programs.
