Founded in 1958, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum welcomes, informs and inspires all through outstanding displays, protected natural areas, horticultural research and education. We’re a member-driven non-profit organization featuring more than 1,200 acres of gardens, plant collections and trails. USA Today readers named us the 2019 Best Botanical Garden.

This blog features perspectives from Minnesota Master Naturalists, as well as stories about Arboretum gardens, research and more.

COVID-19 Update: The Arboretum has temporarily closed–even to walkers–until further notice. Visit this page for updates and information.
