The goal of the Bartlett Arboretum and Gardens is to offer a sacred space to discover, enjoy and learn about nature's habitats.
We achieve this through:
Conserving a 93-acre protected area in southwest New England with natural ecosystems for future generations to discover and appreciate.
Delivering extensive environmental, gardening and botany education programmes for kids and grownups alike
Creating possibilities for relaxation, pleasure and research in nature for all age groups
Care of a varied collection of trees, gardens and plants that express the biological diversity and mirror the ecology and nature of our region
Support of nature protection and sustainable landscape conservation principles
