The Arboretum provides opportunities for students, staff, and visitors to explore and learn about the plant life and other natural wonders of our beautiful campus. We treat our campus as an outdoor living laboratory, which enables students to engage in relevant, experience-based learning.
The UCF Arboretum offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers can volunteer individually or as group to help in the community garden, assist with horticultural work in campus landscapes, or help in campus natural lands. Come out and get your feet wet, your hands dirty, and your knowledge expanded, as you learn more about gardening, landscaping, or natural lands management!More Information
