View from the entrance to the Arboretum
An invitation to walkers, the open feeling of a new place where sweeping lawns interspersed with collections of trees and plants native to the state of Kentucky, its design guided by education and conservation goals, combine to create an arboretum that seems larger than its one hundred acres. Here the vigor of young plants, the rapidly growing trees, and the interest of the local community are the foundation of a legacy, one that will, with dedication, hopefully endure.
