Due to concerns about the Covid-19 outbreak, the Graham Visitors Center will be temporarily closed to the public, starting tomorrow, Monday, March 16. The date of reopening will be determined following University of Washington guidelines. As soon as we know more, we will post an update on our homepage and send out a message to our email list.
The Mary Ellen Mulder Arboretum Gift Shop will be closed during this time period, as will retail operations for the Pat Calvert Greenhouse and Plant Donations Nursery. Other Foundation operations will continue during the next month, though staff will be primarily telecommuting.
The Arboretum grounds remain open to the public. Cherry trees are blooming beautifully on Azalea Way, and soon the magnolias will be in full swing.
With best wishes for our community and region, we encourage all of our visitors to follow county and state guidelines regarding health and safety, as we work together to mitigate the impact from Covid-19.
