Spring Plant Sale!
Join our team of volunteers for our May 26th Spring Plant Sale! We expect 100’s of people to come out and buy locally grown plants, which raises a lot of money for the Arboretum!
We rely on dozens of volunteers to make this popular event a success. Volunteers assist Horticulture staff with plants and helping guests get plants back to their vehicles.
