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.
The Arboretum works hard to promote responsible stewardship of our land by education and example. We work hard to be not only good stewards of the land, but of our donors' generous contributions.
The Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanical Garden is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization. A 501(c)(3) organization receives no city, state or federal operational funding. The Arboretum relies heavily on its members and supporters to maintain and expand this inspiring educational destination for garden lovers, children, and area families. Without the support of the community, we simply would not exist.
