Volunteers can begin to help out at Laurelwood Arboretum on Tuesday.
Individuals may volunteer at Laurelwood every Tuesday and the first Saturday of every month from 9 to 11:30 a.m. until October. Volunteers helping on Saturday will operate in the areas of the 30-acre facility that need the most work.
Individuals will meet in the pavillion. Attendees should bring gloves, small hand tools, and water to drink.
The Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum, a non-profit organization, manages and coordinates volunteer efforts at the Arboretum. The group held a special volunteer kick off event this Saturday.
Groups are welcome to attend, but should call 973-202-9579 to make arrangements in advance.
Laurelwood features several woodland trails and gardens, wildlife, two ponds, and some streams. There are hundreds of varieties of rhododendrons, azaleas, and other unusual species of plants and trees to see.
In addition to gardening, there are a number of construction projects to maintain the bridges, paths, greenhouse and other structures.
Laurelwood Arboretum is located at 725 Pines Lake Drive West.
