At the Arboretum, visitors may experience and explore:

  • 13 gardens with more than 1,700 species of plants;
  • Trails that traverse rocky bluffs and bottomland paths;
  • 180 acres of prairie home to native grasses and wildflowers;
  • Fauna, including birds, dragonflies, deer, snakes and other wildlife;
  • Formal and informal educational activities.

Because the Arboretum is open year-round, visitors may see the beauty of all four seasons.
