support hero


There are many ways for community members to get involved with the botanic garden in addition to visiting. You can become a Friend, give, sponsor a memorial or honorial tree, or volunteer. By becoming a supporter in one of these ways, you help make our work possible.

Memorial Tree

Memorial and Honorial Tree Opportunities

The memorial and honorial tree program is a unique way to commemorate a loved one with a one-of-a-kind living memorial while supporting our mission and the campus arboretum. Our curators work with sponsors to find just the right tree and to create a custom plaque honoring your loved one. Learn more.

Volunteer at the Botanic Garden

Volunteers play a vital role in how the botanic garden operates. They extend our reach to the public by leading tours through the greenhouses and gardens, and staffing our reception area and exhibition gallery. Volunteers are also the reason we’re able to be open and free to the public seven days a week. Learn more.
