Go ahead—hug a tree! That’s what our staff do each and every day as dedicated tree champions committed to protecting and preserving our trees. Trees need human help to survive, and our humans are applying their talents in areas such as research, conservation, horticulture, tree breeding, arboriculture, and more. Don’t have a green thumb? Not to worry—there are opportunities for all kinds of champions at The Morton Arboretum. Just as our collection of trees are diverse, so is the staff that comes together to advance our mission. You’ll find champions in education, event planning, fundraising, marketing, retail positions and visitor services, just to name a few.
Take a look at some of the ways we demonstrate why we are more than a walk in the woods.
