Becoming a Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Volunteer

Our volunteers play a vital role in the success and maintenance of the MN Landscape Arboretum and its beautiful gardens.  Without volunteers the Arboretum could not be the premier public garden that it is!

  • In 2013 we had over 900 active volunteers, some participate year round in a wide range of roles.
  • In 2013, Arboretum volunteers donated 38,475 hours of their valuable time!
  • By joining the ranks of current volunteers, you too can contribute to this magnificent Arboretum.


Thank you for your interest in a volunteer position!
