Visitor Information

The arboretum is open to the public year round without charge.

The trails, meadows and wooded areas provide access to numerous species of trees, shrubs, grasses, ferns and more. The arboretum is constantly changing with the seasons; there is something new to discover wherever you look.

Several areas of the arboretum are maintained as specific wildlife habitats. The engaging behaviors of the birds and animals associated with these distinct ecological communities may be witnessed by the quiet and observant visitor.

Please enjoy these grounds for contemplation, study and wonder in the manner of which they were put in trust.


Daily: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
(Except major holidays)


Tours available by appointment.
