Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center

Apply Today

Thank you for applying to volunteer with us! If you're new to the organization, we're an environmental learning hub that reconnects Chattanoogans with nature. With the help of our volunteers, we're getting closer each day to making our vision (a healthier, happier city whose residents become stewards of their natural surroundings) a reality.

If you already volunteer with us, you know what a special place Reflection Riding is for so many people. We know you've already filled out forms in the past and that doing it again may feel a little repetitive, but we're happy to say that Volunteer Local will help us better track your impact and will enable us to better communicate our needs going forward.

After filling out your application, you will receive a confirmation message with a link to sign up for horticulture, maintenance, and special events shifts. The message will also include a link to schedule a phone call with our volunteer coordinator to chat about more specialized work, such as education, wildlife, or skills-based roles.

If you have any questions, please email volunteer@reflectionriding.org and our volunteer coordinator will get back to you soon!
