THANK YOU for your continued support!

We hope you will continue to support the Woodland Arboretum Foundation as we move through the end of 2022. Support of the Chapel restoration and preservation project is our most critical need. The Tiffany mosaic floor will be restored and the beautiful interior woodwork will also receive a facelift. The beloved Tiffany windows are fully restored and will return once the work on the Chapel has been completed. We are hopeful to open the doors to the public once again in Spring 2023.

Please consider making a first time donation or an annual donation to the Chapel Fund. You may also wish to support the Arboretum Foundation with an unrestricted gift or one for the Horticulture Fund that supports the annual flower displays in the Mausoleum and for flowers and trees in the Arboretum.
