Arboretum Workdays are the third Tuesday of every month. The Arboretum is a Theodore Klein collection of trees from all around the world including beech, magnolia, dogwood and pawpaws to name a few. We hope to recruit volunteers to help us manage this stellar collection. Maintenance will include keeping this area clear of invasives, mulching, removing dead wood, pruning and tree identification. No previous experience is required, but if you know a thing or two about tree care, we'd love to have your help!
