About the Auxiliary

Thank you for supporting the Arboretum with your Auxiliary membership.

The Auxiliary is a group of Arboretum enthusiasts who volunteer time and talent to support the work of the Arboretum.  Volunteer and educational opportunities exist on many levels for our members.  The Auxiliary presents fundraising events which include:  Welcome Spring Sale (in March), Spring Plant Sale (in May), Summer Garden Tours (in July), Fall Harvest Sale and Quilt Raffle (in September), and Holiday Sale (in December).

The Auxiliary holds quarterly meetings followed by  luncheons with educational speakers.  Workshops and informal gettogethers during the year provide educational and enrichment opportunities for our members. We have a Board of Directors and produce a quarterly newsletter. The Auxiliary welcomes all members.
