Arboretum Education

New Leaf’s biggest upcoming project, The Burlington Arboretum at Willowbrook Park, has brought up some questions, most importantly: “What is an arboretum?” According to Merriam-Webster, an arboretum is a place where trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants are cultivated for scientific and educational purposes. We would like to encourage interested individuals to visit the following local Arboretums and Public Gardens:

Bicentennial Garden in Greensboro

Gateway Gardens in Greensboro

Greensboro Arboretum

JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh

NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill

Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham

The above links are also available from the project page: Burlington Arboretum @ Willowbrook Park
