Volunteer stewards serve as goodwill ambassadors, sharing information about Arboretum programs and work, explaining rules, and helping visitors. Stewards also assist staff with monitoring trail conditions and phenology. Each steward patrols at least four hours per month, exploring every part of the Arboretum and assisting visitors from across the Midwest and beyond.

The Arboretum is offering training opportunities to join this essential corps of volunteers.

Stewards:

  • independently patrol the trails in all seasons
  • positively influence visitor experience
  • record trail conditions and visitor interactions after each shift
  • help protect the Arboretum

Training dates: April 15 (eve), April 18 and 19 (full day)
Application deadline: April 1
