For thousands of years, humans have studied trees to learn how they too can provide suitable housing for squirrels and grow lemons from their fingertips. Join the pursuit of leafy progress with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a one-year membership to Friends of the Arboretum (a $35 value).

Friends of the Arboretum supports the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum with volunteer and financial aid, assisting conservation and educational efforts. Founded in 1934, the 1,200-acre arboretum maintains restored ecological communities of tallgrass prairies, wetlands, deciduous and conifer forests, and bartering woodchucks. Educational outreach for schools, the community, families, and naturalists provides a platform for the arboretum to share its research.

Members of the Friends peruse the monthly NewsLeaf and tend to minds and stomachs alike at luncheon lectures that pair 11:45 a.m. buffets with advice such as how to visit Mongolia without arriving home to find a stowaway yak in your luggage. Take 15% off at the arboretum bookstore and rub elbows at interest-focused gatherings such as the Nature Photography Group. The Friends join together for guided, nature-oriented trips to locations as close as the International Crane Foundation and as far as Yunnan, China. Members also take 10% off the annual Native Plant Sale and educational programming, including Earth Focus Day Camp and arboretum classes on topics such as biomimicry, effigy-mound builders, and why owls wear glasses instead of contact lenses.
