Friends of the Arboretum

Friends of the Arboretum

A group of interested friends, neighbors and students who come together to share ideas, resources, and possibilities to enrich the Arboretum experience for all.

We are inviting community members to become part of the Althouse Arboretum. The idea is to be informed, come do what you enjoy, meet new people and become part of an active group that comes together to make our land a first-class outdoor destination for all.

Friends Mission

To empower community members and businesses to work with students to enrich all through the Althouse Arboretum.


  • To support students in becoming experienced leaders in innovating and leading environmental sustainable efforts, creating and carrying out programs, and designing initiatives for the development of the Arboretum.
  • To develop resources that support the activities of the Arboretum.
  • To serve as resources, ambassadors and volunteers to enrich the development of the Arboretum.
  • To get together, stay informed, share ideas and discuss possibilities for enriching the Arboretum experience for the community.

 We’ll be meeting to discuss what’s happening, potentials and opportunities.

Come join us
and explore the possibilities!
All welcomed!!

Currently we do not have the next meeting scheduled. When we have a date we will share in our newsletter and on the events page.
