Friends of the ArboretumMembership Application

The Friends of the Arboretum support the education, conservation, and horticultural activities of the Arboretum.

We believe natural space is essential for a well-rounded education, a deep appreciation of nature, and a lifetime of environmental stewardship. We cherish the Arboretum as a unique place—an outdoor laboratory, a space to escape, to explore, to learn, to grow.

Our contributions provide environmental education experiences for thousands of students and guests. Our goal is to establish within them an understanding and appreciation of nature and the importance of environmental ethics and conservation."

Our support preserves 135 acres of forests, prairies, wetlands, gardens, trails, and more—a place where students, visitors, and families can connect with nature, and each other. Become a member today!
