We are seeking volunteers to join the Reading Public Museum Arboretum Assistant Program for 2022. Each year, the number of projects at the Arboretum increase along with the need for additional volunteers. Gardening sessions are Wednesday mornings from 9am -12pm beginning the first week in April through the end of October.

As in the past, we are asking volunteers to commit to the equivalent of 2 Wednesday mornings per month (or approximately 14 weeks). The Wednesdays will be of your choosing with advanced sign-ups requested. We work in groups with a Penn State Master Gardener as a supervisor of each group. You will only be asked to accept tasks physically comfortable for you. 

We ask all prospective Arboretum Assistants to attend a training and informational session on Wednesday, March 16 at 8:30am (Inclement weather date March 23) in the Neag Planetarium at the Reading Public Museum.  

To register for this exciting volunteer opportunity or request additional information, contact Donna Goughnour, Volunteer Coordinator, by March 5, at tstingrayg@comcast.net.
