Diana Wilkinson Shares Why She Loves the Arboretum

I HAVE BEEN A VOLUNTEER AT THE ARBORETUM FOR FIVE YEARS; INVOLVED WITH THE ANNUAL ARBOR FEST ACTIVITIES, HOSTING GARDEN TOURS, LIGHTING CANDLES AT THE LUMINARIA, ON THE AUTUMN BOUNTY PLANNING COMMITTEE AND EVENTUALLY SERVING ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

THE ARBORETUM IS A PLACE FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES, WHETHER YOU LIKE BIRD WATCHING, WALKING THE TRAILS TO SEE ALL THE DIFFERENT FLORA AND FAUNA, ENJOY A PICNIC NEXT TO THE POND, ATTENDING A CLASS OR PARTICIPATING IN A CELEBRATION BY UTILIZING THE JEWETT CENTER AMENITIES LIKE MY SON AND DAUGHTER IN LAW WHEN WE CELEBRATED THEIR WEDDING.

THE ANNUAL PLANT SALE PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE PUBLIC TO PURCHASE PLANTS AND TALK TO INDIVIDUALS WHO SHARE THE SAME LOVE OF GARDENING. VISIT THE GIFT SHOP WHERE YOU CAN PURCHASE GARDENING TOOLS, GIFTS FOR THE NATURALIST IN YOUR FAMILY AND OTHER UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND ITEMS.

THE ARBORETUM IS A GREAT BACKDROP FOR SENIOR PICTURES, WEDDINGS, QUINCEANERA OR LASTING FAMILY MEMORIES. WHETHER IT IS IN THE SPRING WHILE FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING, IN THE FALL WHEN THE LEAVES ARE CHANGING COLOR OR THE WINTER WONDERLAND WITH FRESH FALLEN SNOW. THE ARBORETUM TRULY HAS SOMETHING TO OFFER EVERYONE.

BECOME A MEMBER TO RECEIVE CLASS DISCOUNTS, EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS OF UPCOMING EVENTS AND KNOW THAT YOUR DONATION STAYS WITH THE ARBORETUM TO PROVIDE A PLACE FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY. PLEASE DONATE YOUR TIME AND/OR MONEY TO KEEP THIS BEAUTIFUL, HIDDEN GEM, AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE FOR GENERATIONS.
