Become a Volunteer
Each year nearly 3500 volunteers give over 95 thousand hours to the Dallas Arboretum. We simply could not do what we do without their dedication to service. We offer a variety of opportunities to let you share your talents and pursue your interests, listed below. Teens are invited to apply for the Teen Leadership Council (see below for more details), and corporate groups are welcome to come as a large group. There is a place for everyone.
For more information about individual or group volunteering, contact the office at 214-515-6561 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
