Past Letters from the Director

Happy New Year!

Dear Friends, 

Happy New Year! 2024 is going to be an exciting year at the Arboretum as we begin our year-long celebration of our 50th Anniversary! Over the past five decades, the Arboretum has blossomed into a haven of natural beauty, an institution for learning and exploration, and a source of inspiration for our community. This golden anniversary is a tribute to all those who have contributed to the Arboretum’s growth and success over the years. From the dedicated staff and volunteers to the countless visitors who have passed through our gates, each has played a pivotal role in shaping RRA into the vibrant garden it is today. 

To mark this momentous occasion, we are planning several special events and initiatives throughout the year that will not only serve as a tribute to the past but also pave the way for an even brighter future. We invite you to join us in commemorating this milestone and participating in the festivities as the year unfolds.

As we reflect on the past and look forward to the future, let us celebrate the role RRA plays in fostering a sense of community, promoting environmental stewardship, and providing a sanctuary for all who visit

Thank you for your ongoing support, and we look forward to celebrating this historic occasion with you.

Until next time,
