Every year, thousands of people visit The Arboretum for educational programming, workshops, special events, or simply to enjoy the scenery. Our educational programs help children and adults learn about Iowa's natural heritage, how to care for the environment and how to use the inspiration of The Arboretum to improve their own landscapes.
As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, every contribution matters. The Cedar Valley Arboretum and Botanic Gardens receives no city, state, or federal funding for our operation. You can be proud that your tax-deductible financial gift assures a bright future for the Arboretum.
Make a forever-gift to our Endowment
The Arboretum is constantly looking forward and planning ahead. You can help us do so
making a gift to the Cedar Valley Arboretum and Botanic Gardens Fund, an endowment fund established at the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa. A gift to The Arboretum’s endowment fund is a lasting one that will ensure the Arboretum will have the
resources to continue to fulfill its mission for generations to come. Because the fund is endowed, all donated dollars are invested, and only the income resulting from the investments can be used by
the Arboretum on an annual basis.
