The Arboretum is completely open. But due to heavy rain, one bridge is temporarily closed. Please obey the barricade.
Connect to trees, nature and yourself in a tranquil setting.
Our tree collections are suited to central Iowa and are part of a scenic landscape featuring a tapestry of informal groupings of trees, natural plantings, water features and quiet walking trails.
We encourage children, families and professionals to visit, learn and be actively involved in healthy outdoor activities.
Understand and appreciate the value of trees; encourage their planting, care, protection and enjoyment.
Help us reach more children and families, provide wonderful visitor experiences and broaden our support.
