Friends of the Waite Arboretum
Friends of the Waite Arboretum work to foster interest in the care and use of the Arboretum, and to raise funds for its development and promotion.
Members receive a quarterly newsletter and may participate in a program of exhibitions, excursions, events and lectures. You can participate by helping to tend the collection, help with fundraising, developing educational materials or by being an Arboretum Guide.

- General maintenance and handy person work
- Gardening, planting, weeding, pruning, watering

People interested in native vegetation can also help in the Waite Conservation Reserve.
