The University of Idaho Arboreta are outdoor museums of a living collection of native and introduced plants. As a primary reference collection, the highest priority of the arboreta is to develop, curate and maintain a diverse collection for all to study and enjoy. Gifts to the Arboretum Associates fund will help meet the goals of the University of Idaho Arboreta, which are:

  • Provide a site for instruction in botany, horticulture, forestry, landscape architecture, environmental sciences and other fields related to the living collection. 
  • Encourage authorized research in fields such as plant hardiness, systematics and hybridization.
  • Educate the public through field trips, lectures and tours.
  • Provide to the public a restful, beautiful environment for the purpose of gaining knowledge and appreciation of the importance of plants. 

Please consider a gift today to Arboretum Associates to maintain a living research facility, as well as a magnificent environment for all to enjoy for generations to come.
