Kindly RSVP by May 7, 2020

For over 100 years, Awbury Arboretum has served the public as a free 55-acre landscape and center of learning and community engagement in the heart of Germantown. From 1916, when it was gifted as a public garden by the Cope family, Awbury has been connecting urban residents with history and nature.

With the help of our generous community of supporters, The Awbury Arboretum Association continues to steward, restore, and improve Awbury’s gardens and grounds. Recent improvements include expanded formal woodland gardens, the AdventureWoods natural materials playground in the Secret Garden, and the current monumental restoration of our ponds and watercourse, which will play an important role in the City-wide effort to better manage stormwater retention and treatment.
