Why Volunteer?

Mount Pisgah Arboretum was created and developed by dedicated volunteers for nearly a decade before the first paid staff was hired, and the Arboretum continues to grow and prosper due to the tireless efforts of our community of volunteers. Each year 500 volunteers spend more than 7,000 hours helping sustain the vision of Mount Pisgah Arboretum.  Our volunteer program brings together students, retirees, at-risk youth, local businesses, university organizations, assisted living programs, and anybody with an extra hour to spare. Volunteers build trails, remove invasive plants, teach children about nature, and make our annual Festivals possible.
