Volunteer with us!

Saint John's Outdoor University and the Abbey Arboretum rely on a dedicated crew of volunteers for all of our work.  If you are a community member, CSB/SJU student or a visitor to Collegeville, there are volunteer opportunities available for you.  

For most jobs, experience is not required, but enthusiasm and an interest in the environment definitely are!  Volunteer opportunities can be adjusted for groups, symposiums, individual projects, or service learning; just ask us and we will be happy to work with you.

If you have any questions or further comments, please contact us
