We Need Halloween Freaks!

We are looking for groups to have a scare section at the Haunted Trail! Don't have a group? We need wanderers, too. We have props, lights, and limited costumes to use. And, even if you don't like scaring people, we have plenty of other volunteer opportunities available.

August Volunteer of the Month

Christie Armitage

I began volunteering in February ‘22 after moving to the Brainerd area last November.  I wanted to get involved in the community and love the outdoors, so the Arb was a perfect match for me. I thought volunteering at the front desk would be a great way to discover what the Arb has to offer and I do learn something new every time I am there.  I enjoy traveling, cooking, hiking and spending time with my family and friends.
