Volunteer FAQ

How old do I have to be to volunteer?

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. If not, a parent or LEGAL guardian MUST accompany the volunteer while he or she is volunteering.

How long does the process take to become a volunteer?

Depending on available positions, orientation sessions and events, the time varies for when a volunteer will begin. Group volunteers, special events volunteers, and short term volunteer activities will be handled accordingly.

Can volunteering at Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center lead to a paid position?

It is possible, but there are absolutely no guarantees that any volunteers will be offered a paid position. When a position becomes open, volunteers will be given equal consideration with other applicants.

Can you volunteer as a group? 

Are you looking for a hands-on activity for your office, club, troop, or group? We have many opportunities based on your time, talent, and group size. We offer many service work days that groups can sign up to participate in.  We can even make a day of caring just for your company, organization, church, scout group, school group, etc. All you need to do is complete the Group Volunteer Application.
