We have the greatest volunteers and once a year we try to get everyone together to say THANK YOU --- in a big way. Last week we had our annual Volunteer Appreciation Party and we were able to honor our volunteers for their dedication and the wonderful work they do in keeping the Arboretum looking so beautiful for all to enjoy.

We LOVE our volunteers!

GARDENS CLOSED UNTIL SUNDAY MORNING!

The Arboretum will host Feast Down East again this year and their premier fundraising event 'Raise the Barn'. Proceeds benefit the nonprofit work of Feast Down East, connecting small-scale farms to local markets and improving access for all consumers, including those in underserved communities

Due to the large amount of work involved in setting up for the event tomorrow night the grounds will be closed for the rest of today and all day tomorrow, reopening Sunday morning.
We apologize in advance, and hope that this does not interfere with your weekend plans too much!
