Team leader training work party

Do you enjoy working with others while taking care of the Earth? If so, we encourage you to become a Restoration Team Leader. You will develop professional ecological skills, practice the land ethic, and give back to your community.

Restoration team leaders make significant contributions to Arboretum land management. They play an important part in caring for the land, fostering engagement, and working with others. They also gain invaluable personal and professional experience as they learn about native ecosystems and plants, manage and maintain native landscapes, and develop leadership and communication skills. Team leaders get to know the Arboretum and how it works in every season.

The Arboretum is offering training opportunities to join this essential corps of volunteers. The extensive training includes working outdoors, online and in-class time, and Adult First Aid/CPR/AED Certification. We ask for a big commitment, and we provide a unique and enduring opportunity in leadership and ecological restoration.

Restoration team leaders:

  • lead and supervise volunteers at Saturday morning work parties
  • restore native ecosystems and improve habitat for wildlife and endangered species
  • keep accurate records and communicate with staff
  • develop professional leadership and land management skills

Training begins October 2
Application deadline: September 25
Cost: $100
