Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden blooms with 155 acres of flora and fauna that send families and plant lovers on relaxing and educational voyages over lush garden lawns. Nature aficionados stroll along forested paths, sniff blooms in specialty gardens flourishing with peonies and hostas or planted with prehistoric plants in hopes of attracting migrating pterodactyls, and leaf through books about botany and horticulture at the Harding Horticultural Library. Young ones wind through the hedge maze in the Nancy Olson Children’s Garden, practicing for tomorrow's hot new careers in laboratory research, or splash in the Fountain Garden. Programming informs and entertains members with discounts to musical events, including the Woodsong Concerts, held on the lawn in the Fountain Garden on Sundays, and with classes on topics that have ranged from Lotsa Hostas! to Illinois Birds: A Century of Change.

Cross-country horticultural journeys also benefit, with free admission or discounts at more than 300 other gardens belonging to the American Horticultural Society.
Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden
While strolling through the 155 acres of woods and gardens at Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden, visitors may notice a few odd specimens. Many of these experimental plants have been growing since 1910 and stand as the legacy of founder and landscape architect William Lincoln Taylor. Budding botanists will find speciality gardens dedicated to peonies, hostas, and rhododendrons, as well as woodland wildflowers and unique grasses. The Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden welcomes members and guests to explore these gardens, but also to learn about the environment during tours and educational programs. Members help keep the arboretum thriving with annual contributions, which they are rewarded for with benefits such as reciprocal membership at almost 300 gardens nationwide.
