A collage of volunteers doing varied indoor and outdoor tasks across the Arboretum.

Volunteers participate in almost every area of the National Arboretum’s work. Volunteers assist in gardens, laboratories, research fields, the herbarium, and historical collections. We ask most of our volunteers to contribute a minimum of four hours weekly but encourage interested individuals with less availability to still contact us.
