2021 Annual Appeal

Dear Friends, 

November marks a very important time at the Arboretum. It’s the time of year that we ask you to support the work we do with a gift to our Annual Appeal, Nurturing Nature 2021.

I strongly believe that carrying out our mission – engaging, educating, and enriching our visitors so they become better stewards of nature and the environment – is an investment in our future. While reducing our carbon footprint and minimizing the amount of waste we produce are important steps in improving the health of our planet, having a love and respect for it is just as important. With every program we teach or garden tour we lead, we are planting seeds of love and respect for the natural world that we hope will root and continue to grow; and be passed along to others.

So please help me continue to plant these “seeds” with a gift today.

With deepest gratitude,




Jackie Kondel
