The Cedar Valley Arboretum and Botanic Gardens is an all-outdoor facility which is open sun or light showers. However, our accessible hours may change without prior notice. Due to the unpredictability of Iowa weather, inclement weather such as severe thunderstorms or tornados may cause the Arboretum to close early and with little chance for notice. If you are concerned about weather it's best to call ahead and be sure we are open.
