The Living Collections of the Arnold Arboretum represent an unparalleled resource for appreciating and understanding our natural world. Our Collections Campaign is a 10-year initiative to expand and enhance the collections as global change poses serious threats to biodiversity. Beyond annual expeditions to collect and preserve germplasm for study and conservation, staff have also focused on making our landscape a richer and more sustainable ecosystem for the plants we grow. 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 our trees as a critical resource for science, education, and horticulture in Boston and the world by making a donation today.
