Who We Are

Founded in 1996, The Cedar Valley Arboretum and Botanic Gardens is a 501c3 non-profit organization located directly East of Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa. 


The mission of the Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens is to enhance the quality of life for all individuals through horticulture. We seek to enrich life by nourishing and sharing the beauty of the natural world, the joy of gardening, knowledge of plants, and the diversity of our world.


The vision of the Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens is to serve as a compelling public resource for the study of plants, a leader in environmental stewardship, a cultural center for the community, and a showcase of Iowa's rich heritage with the land.
