Are you looking for an opportunity to work in the soil and participate in a volunteer opportunity?

The Arboretum's entrance garden team is looking for people who would like to work in the Arboretum a few hours a week. The team has maintained the entrance beds for the past several years.

We help design the beds, plant, mulch, water and weed all of the entrance beds. Once we get that under control, we help the staff mow, trim trees and clear underbrush from the trees around the Arboretum.

We have also started efforts to rejuvenate the Lilac Beds. And we have been involved in a labeling project to identify and label the Arboretum tree collection. As you can see the team is involved in many activities and could use help in any or all of these areas - a great opportunity to learn and help.
The team normally works each Tuesday morning for three hours.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the team, please contact Jerry Tilmann at (269)964-2267 or Rick Maison at (269)986-4588.
