EXPLOREcorps members are high school aged volunteer participants (rising 9-12 grades) with an interest in nature and the outdoors. This is a great opportunity to explore career interests and make a difference in the lives of young people! Through volunteer service, members will learn about outdoor and conservation education, citizen science, care of live animals, and techniques and skills involved in field biology and outdoor recreation.

EXPLOREcorps members spend part of their summer assisting professional educators in delivering programs at the Arboretum’s Discovery Camps. Members stay involved year-round by assisting with Public Environmental Education Events and the Roving Naturalist Cart (a part of the new ecoEXPLORE program).

We are no longer accepting applications for 2017, thank you.
