Dear Friend of Awbury,

The Arboretum has gone through many changes in the last year: changes in leadership, personnel, and Board membership along with new physical structures, new programs, and an active commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Click on the vibrant photo collage picturing our fabulous wellness events, Sunday Fun Day gatherings, welcoming Awbury Ambassadors, and fun-filled camp adventures for a list of staff and Board members new to their positions this year, along with the dedicated individuals who continue to work and serve Awbury.

As we continue to strive to serve our community and steward this dynamic landscape, we ask you to join us with your support.

  • $250 will pay for a bus for schoolchildren to come to explore with a Field Studies lesson
  • $500 will allow a neighborhood child to attend camp for two weeks on scholarship
  • $1,000 will host four free family Sunday Fun Day events at The Farm
  • $5,000 will support the removal of hundreds of invasive plants
  • $10,000 will fund our Awbury Ambassadors program for a whole year

A gift of any size will support nurturing the 56 acres of the Arboretum which are free and open to the community 365 days a year. We need you!

If you have any questions about Awbury, do not hesitate to reach out to us. We thank you for your consideration and hope to see you at Awbury soon.
