Annual Appeal


Dear Friends,

Whenever I teach a program, I often begin by asking “What is an arboretum?” According to Merriam-Webster, an arboretum is a place where trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants are cultivated for scientific and educational purposes.   I often describe it as a tree museum since museums are collections of things. While adults and children come here to learn about horticulture and nature, I believe we are much more than that. Reeves-Reed Arboretum is a place...

  • where photographers, artists, and gardeners come for inspiration. 
  • where couples get married and families celebrate special occasions. 
  • where friends meet for tea and families experience camping for the first time. 
  • where children and adults decompress after a long day at school and the office. 
  • where memories are made and worries are left behind. 

We work hard to be all these things for you, and we need your help to continue to do so.  Please give generously to our Annual Appeal so we can continue to be your Arboretum. Your fully tax-deductible gift provides the general operating support needed to carry out our mission. 

 With deepest gratitude,



Jackie Kondel
Executive Director
