As part of the 5 year anniversary of ArbNet we launched a quarterly newsletter (subscribe here) to keep our arboretum community up to date with recent news, new accreditations and highlighted resources. We also put a call out for a capacity building grant. The purpose of the grant is to support an ArbNet accredited arboretum in advancing its professional capacity in any of the four core areas of arboretum operations:
- Arboretum Management
- Education and Public Engagement
- Tree Collections
- Tree Science and Conservation
We are also offering a free 5th anniversary commemorative tree label to all accredited arboreta! Contact the ArbNet Coordinator (ArbNet@mortonarb.org) for your label.
