Online Collections

Welcome to the Awbury Arboretum’s online collections!

This important project would not have been completed without the support of our staff, volunteers, and neighbors, as well as the many donations of photographs we have received over the years. Thank you!

We particular thank and remember Gay Gilpin Johnson, whose passion, commitment, and tireless service to Awbury Arboretum and her community was and will continue to be an inspiration.  Generations of Arboretum staff, Board members, volunteers, and visitors have been the beneficiaries of Gay’s grace, generosity, and quiet determination, especially in support of the archives.

The purpose of this portion of the Awbury Arboretum archive’s website is to allow the public to search, view and order images available in our archives, and access information associated with them. To use this portion of the website, there are several options.
