VOLUNTEER with local NGOs:

The Gifford Arboretum is run by the Department of Biology and the Friends of the Gifford Arboretum Committee which consists of faculty, students, administrators, and community members. It is a collection of important trees and plants that have been assembled for the purposes of eduction and research. Visitors are permitted (and encouraged!) to freely visit the collection for self-guided tours, and for the guided tours and lectures that are conducted throughout the school year (please see ‘Calender’). In addition, annual events include a spring lecture by a distinguished plant scientist and a fall picnic.  To learn more about events, birds, butterflies and plants lists or to become a member, visit the Gifford John C. Arboretum
