Hoyt Arboretum was founded in 1928 as a living laboratory for scientific study as well as public enjoyment. Today, as it spans more than 187 acres straddling a ridge, the arboretum has become a haven for familiar and exotic trees from around the world. In addition to its focus on appreciation and study, the Arboretum also protects rare and endangered specimens and cultivates seeds for preservation.
A network of trails cuts through the arboretum, where more than 6,000 specimens from a meticulously curated collection represent more than 1,400 species of shrubs and trees. All of the collections are organized by taxonomy and geography and include way-finding signage and interpretive panels, with each tree marked by identification labels. On regular guided tours docents usher visitors through this natural wonderland, using their own unique perspective to showcase the current trees in bloom. Special activities for children and families—including a 1-mile stroller-friendly trail—pass a love of nature on to future generations.
