Upcoming Arboretum Classes

One bonus of yearly membership in the Evergreen Arboretum is our engaging, informative classes. While available to the public for a fee, classes are free for members! You can JOIN right here on our website.

Many of our classes are held in the Arboretum itself, like our pruning classes, while others are held in the Arboretum Portable to the left of the entrance. They are very popular, so pre-registration is required. Class times vary, but the joy of gardening is a given!
