2024 Volunteer Opportunities

Thanks to all our volunteers!

Would you like to make a difference in your community and connect with other gardeners in our beautiful Arboretum? We are currently scheduling training for new and returning volunteers for 2024. 

Current Volunteer Training Schedule: 

Please check back, as this schedule will be subject to change.

Registration is required to participate in Volunteer Training. Please email Ryan Adair at arboretum@uky.edu to register for participation. 

We have reached capacity for our regularly occurring opportunities on Tuesdays (Horticulture Gardens), Wednesdays (Vegetable Garden), and Thursdays (Native Plants Collection). We encourage you to check back with us in March 2024 for information on how to on-board and join one of our volunteer areas.
