Help keep our Arboretum and Public Garden spaces open

A message from Director Kathleen Socolofsky to our community

We hope you and your families are all in good health. We care deeply about the health of our community, and slowing the spread of COVID-19 is our highest priority. For that reason, and in light of the recent campus and statewide orders to shelter-in-place, we are canceling all public events, including our plant sales, until further notice.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience. Please check back on our website for any updates. We also recommend that you subscribe to our e-newsletter for up-to-date notifications. You can do that on our website at

Our staff is still working remotely. We can be reached by email at, which is the preferred method of contact at this time. Voicemail messages will be returned as soon as possible.

Sending wishes of health and safety to all!
