READING PUBLIC MUSEUM ARBORETUM ASSISTANT PROGRAM 2018
The Reading Public Museum is seeking volunteers to join the 2018 Arboretum Assistants Program. Each year, the number of projects at the Arboretum increase as does the need for additional volunteers.
Gardening sessions are Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. - 12 noon from the first week in April through the end of October. Volunteers are asked to commit to the equivalent of two Wednesday mornings per month (or approximately 14 weeks). The Wednesdays will be of volunteers choosing with advanced sign-ups requested. The Arboretum Assistants work in groups with a Penn State Master Gardener as a supervisor of each group. Volunteers are only asked to accept tasks physically comfortable to them.
Prospective Arboretum Assistants are asked to attend two training/informational sessions. These will be held Wednesday March 7 and March 21, 2018 at 9 a.m. at The Museum. To register for this exciting volunteer opportunity or to request additional information, contact Karen Moyer, Volunteer Coordinator, by February 26, 2018. Either email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Arboretum office at 610.371.5850 x239 and leave a message.
