Our mission is sustaining managed to natural ecosystems and the human spirit through plant research, display, and education.
The Arboretum is a hidden gem on the shores of Lake Washington. Jointly managed by UW and the City of Seattle, its 230 acres are a dynamic assortment of plants found nowhere else. The City owns the land and the University owns all of the trees and plant collections. In terms of care, maintenance and management, the City takes care of the park-like functions (trails, benches, garbage) and the UW Botanic Gardens takes care of the gardens, trees, and plant collections. The Graham Visitors Center contains an information desk and a gift shop managed by the Arboretum Foundation.
