Spring is a time to celebrate. As Mother’s and Father’s Day, weddings, anniversaries, graduations and the like draw near, it can be difficult to pick out just the right gift. This year, consider a tribute gift: a unique way to celebrate special occasions.
Choose from a list of existing trees that the Arboretum has available for dedication.
As you explore the Arboretum, have you ever paused in front of a tribute marker and wondered at the story behind that tree, bench, brick, or book?
It takes a special kind of dedication to become a Woodland Steward.
A tribute bench is a great way to honor a special friend or family member.
The Woodland Stewardship Program schools volunteers to interact with nature in a way that is both meaningful and sustainable.
