How the Arboretum Became the Arboretum: The First 25 Years - Free Lecture/Tour

Sunday, May 05, 2019

Emily Wheeler, Arboretum Docent

The Arnold Arboretum did not come into existence full-formed, but had a long adolescence before it (literally) blossomed at 50. Our first director, Charles Sargent, prepared a 50-year report in 1922, before the end of his own 54-year tenure. But, what about the first 25 years?

We don't have a 25-year report; however, we do have photos and the engaging stories from that time.

Join our docent to hear those stories, as she takes you on a timeline through the walnut and oak collections, to the beeches, and back via Bussey Hill. This tour meets at the Centre Street Gate.

In case of inclement weather, contact 617.384.5209.
