Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens
Volunteer Application

Complete this Volunteer Application to become a volunteer. 

Volunteers must be:

  • At least 18 years old, unless attending with their caregiver.
  • Willing to complete a background check at their own expense (about $25.00), if you are not affilitated with Ohio State Univeristy*.
  • Interested and excited to learn, to share your passions and expertise, to make friends, and to help Chadwick Arboretum become a model public garden for the 21st century!  

When we receive your completed application, we will contact you with an invitation to join the next orientation session and instructions on obtaining your background check. Current Master Gardener Volunteers, Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalists, and Ohio State University students, staff, and faculty do not need to complete a background check. 

*The background check fee should not restrict you from applying to be a volunteer. We work with everyone to make our volunteer sessions open to all.
