Things are heating up at the Arboretum
Well, that heat wave we heard about for days finally made its way to the Arboretum. Staff, interns, and volunteers are doing their best to keep up with watering beds and keeping weeds down while also trying to keep themselves safe while working outside. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the people who keep the Arboretum looking wonderful all season long, including on the hottest days!
Interns work on creating gravel pathways to replace the current mulch trail around the Arboretum.

Please note, the Tabor Home wine tasting has been rescheduled

Due to the excessive heat, we think it's safer and far more enjoyable for attendees to reschedule our wine tasting event to later in the month. We apologize for any inconvenience for the change.

Please join us on Wednesday, July 31st for a laid back and relaxing tasting at the Arboretum. Sample our selection of Iowa Native Wines from Tabor Home Winery and enjoy stuff to snack on while at the tasting. If you find something you love, you can buy a bottle in the gift shop and take it back home for you to enjoy later.

Free with regular admission to the gardens ($5 per adult) and free for members. No pre-registration required.
