Donate / Wish List



As part of the Summer Soiree Social, The Arboretum initiated a campaign to raise funds to help get kids out of the classroom and into nature at The Arboretum. We want to make our standards-based, experiential programs available to more local youth and you can help by making a donation to support scholarships to teachers to pay for travel to The Arboretum. For more information, please contact

  • School buses for field trips are limited, charters are an option if there are funds available
  • Teachers/students have to pay for field trip travel
  • A bus trip from town to The Arboretum can cost over $100 for FUSD schools and more for schools further away
