Become a Volunteer
Each year nearly 3,500 volunteers give over 95,000 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. We invite high school students to join our Teen Leadership Council and college students to join our Collegiate Leadership Council (see details below). Corporate groups are also welcome to come as a large group. There is a place for everyone.
