Dick Repsher and Tatiana Calmon, garden
volunteers at the Arboretum, prepare Cannas for winter storage
Volunteers include members of the community as well as Penn
State faculty, staff, and students.
Since 2007, there has been an all-volunteer ecological
restoration group that is striving to halt the spread of nonnative
shrubs such as honeysuckle, privet, and multiflora rose in the
understory of an historic woodlot in the Arboretum.
There are also several types of assistance needed in the gardens,
and ongoing needs for docents to lead tours. These volunteer opportunities
are shown below and on the application form (ARBORETUM
VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FORM).
