Celebrate, Honor, and Remember

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. Tribute trees vary in species and location on our grounds.
 
Our Tribute benches complement garden settings and trail walkways, and create an opportunity for visitors to sit and enjoy the surrounding beauty.
 
Sheltered by an ivy-covered sugar maple and a stately London plane tree, the bronze-colored tribute bricks are located on the south side of the entrance circle—a prominent place near the main entrance to the Arboretum.
 
Tribute gifts start at $250. Tribute gift donors of $1,500 or more receive a complimentary one-year family membership to the Arboretum.
 
Your tribute gift provides philanthropic support for the Arboretum’s mission to create a greener, healthier, and more beautiful world. For additional information about a tribute gift, call the Development Office at 630-725-2027.
 
Every one of our tribute gifts has a story. What story will yours tell?
