Pacific Connections Campaign
The Pacific Connections Garden marks the first major new exhibit in the Arboretum in nearly 50 years. The 14-acre garden will be located at the south end of the Arboretum and feature five eco-geographic forests representing Cascadia, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, and China. The Arboretum Foundation’s Pacific Connections Campaign is an ambitious, multiphase fundraising effort to raise more than $15 million to create and maintain the new garden.
Phase II of the campaign was completed in 2013, with the construction of the New Zealand Forest. Campaigns for the remaining forests (Australia, Chile, and China) will be launched in the near future.
A long-held vision is to build endowment funds to ensure the maintenance and care of forests in the Pacific Connections Garden for generations to come.
