Volunteer Opportunities

 Thank you for your interest in volunteer opportunities at The North Carolina Arboretum!

Volunteers can sign up to help in a variety of fun ways as part of the Winter Lights festivities. Outside opportunities are available at the fire pits & s’mores stations, directing visitors and operating the Rocky Cove Railroad. If you prefer indoors, volunteers are needed to greet visitors, in the gift shop or at the check in stations.

Volunteer shifts are available seven days a week, 5:30- 10:00 p.m., including holidays.

Individuals (18 and over) and groups are welcome!

Please check HERE to learn more about volunteer positions during Winter Lights.
