Volunteers

Be a LOUA Volunteer

The Lower Olentangy Urban Arboretum (LOUA) was established in 2010 with a Columbus Foundation grant. The grant paid for native Ohio trees to be planted in South Clintonville tree-lawns. Select trees are marked along two walks (maps here).

LOUA needs volunteers to maintain and upgrade our urban arboretum. Anyone is welcome.
