At Tyler, we invite families to volunteer together.
We believe that young people who receive the encouragement of a family member or mentor during nature explorations grow up to be outdoor enthusiasts and conservators in their own right. The minimum age for anyone to volunteer at Tyler Arboretum is 12 years old, with the exception of the Pollinator Preserve, which is age 6. All young people ages 12-17 who wish to volunteer must do so with a parent or guardian or with a responsible adult (someone who is at least 18 years old).
Below, you will find a list of currently available volunteer opportunities. Please review the list carefully prior to filling out the Volunteer Family Application form. By clicking on each opportunity, you will find further details and a link to the specific job description. Download the application and save it on your computer, fill it out and save your changes. Please submit the form electronically to Lexi Fowler at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may print the form and complete it by hand and either drop it off at the Tyler Arboretum Visitor Center or mail it to 515 Painter Road, Media, PA, 19053, attention Lexi Fowler, Volunteer Coordinator.
