Dedicated to stewardship and discovery, the Arnold Arboretum advances conservation programs as a priority. Founding Director Charles Sprague Sargent set the stage as author of the Forestry Census of 1884, a groundbreaking document in the formation of US conservation policy. Sargent also initiated the Arboretum’s pioneering work in plant exploration, extending global reach to our mission to collect and preserve temperate biodiversity. This legacy continues through the Campaign for the Living Collections, which targets many species threatened with extinction in their native habitats. Conservation is also a focus for collaboration, from partnerships for harboring endangered plants, to stewarding eight national collections, to preserving and sharing germplasm with other public gardens.
