Volunteer

Arbor Day volunteers enjoy a moment in the sun.

The Arboretum’s landscape is a living laboratory, a sanctuary, a cathedral of trees. We expand Joy Morton’s founding vision through the efforts of over 1,000 volunteers. Become a volunteer of The Morton Arboretum and be a champion of trees.
