Preserving an Extraordinary Living Collection

The Living Collections of the Arnold Arboretum represent an unparalleled resource for appreciating and understanding our natural world. Our decade-long initiative to expand and enhance the collections comes at a time when global change poses serious threats to Earth’s biodiversity. The Campaign for the Living Collections seeks to acquire some 400 species of plants from around the globe, many with conservation value, to enhance the scope and value of Arboretum holdings over the next century. Preserving a world-class collection for scientific inquiry (as well as a first class botanical garden and public park) makes plant health and horticultural excellence essential. Please help sustain these critical resources for science, education, and horticulture in Boston and the world by making a donation today.
