The Visitor Center remains closed as we work through operational needs to provide safe and welcoming access for all staff, volunteers, and visitors. Check back for reopening information soon.
We are accepting room reservations and wedding requests for 2022. To inquire about availability, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Since we could not hold in-person events during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting room use to our own events and meetings for the remainder of 2021.
Photography permits are being issued.
The Visitor Center auditorium and classroom may be rented for university, nonprofit, and business events. See the Room Rentals page for guidelines and fees.
Do you dream of a gorgeous location for a wedding, commitment, or vow renewal ceremony? The Arboretum could be your special place. (Sorry, no receptions.) We invite inquiries from couples who would like a unique, ecologically sensitive ceremony. Please see our Weddings page for more information.
Arboretum Drive may be used for running, cycling, and walking events—however, all events must be permitted and adhere to our guidelines. See the Athletic Events page for more information.
The Arboretum is a popular, much-loved landscape for photographers. Photography for personal non-commercial use is allowed without a permit.
Amateur and professional photographers taking posed or formal pictures (for example engagement, wedding, senior year, family) must obtain a permit. Stock and commercial photography and videography requires advance arrangements with the university. All photographers and clients must follow Visitor Etiquette. Go to the Photography Policy page for information and to purchase a permit online.
