As communities navigated through the challenges of the past year, awareness surrounding the importance of caring for outdoor spaces has grown exponentially. Parks, campgrounds, and local/state/national forests were heavily sought after, as people became more engaged in outdoor recreation opportunities. As we begin our journey through 2022, the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum continues its mission to serve as a beautiful urban sanctuary that blossoms with educational opportunities, access to our local community, students, and visitors. Along with all of our friends who help protect and care for these spaces, we invite your support.
We ask you to join our environmental stewards and supporters this Giving Day, February 22, 2022. Help us maintain and care for this forest sanctuary where we play, relax, exercise, learn, and become healthier individuals, together.
