Protect and Enhance YOUR Urban Oasis
Dear Arboretum supporter:
Did you know that the Arboretum would never have been created without the commitment of a small group of local citizens? Passionate nature lovers, these women and men were determined to help realize a shared vision of a world-class botanic garden in our urban core. During the Great Depression, they secured the necessary funding to move the project forward.
Thanks to their efforts, and our continued, joint stewardship, we all have access to this soul-restoring place.
Your gift TODAY impacts:
- The number of arborists and gardeners caring for Washington Park Arboretum.
- The efforts of volunteers who help with horticulture, events, and fundraising.
- The size of our scholarship fund for on-site environmental education programs.
- And much more.
With a gift to our Fall Appeal, you partner with the Arboretum Foundation on a mission to preserve what you care about. Right now, please join us in stewarding this urban oasis—one of the few FREE, un-gated arboretums in the U.S.!
Thank you for your consideration,
(and Arbor Circle Member)
P.S. The free, public Washington Park Arboretum and its natural treasures are here for all only because of private support. That’s why we’re counting on you to be a nature lover with your early gift to our Fall Appeal. Thank you!
