Celebrating 20 years
Since it's official opening twenty years ago, the Arboretum has grown into an inspirational living landscape where family, friends and comrades can celebrate lives lived and remember lives lost.
We are making three pledges in which we commit to continue to engage people in Remembrance, adopt and advocate for sustainable practices, and nurture a space that is inclusive and accessible to all. In partnership with the National Forest, a large part of this work will include the creation of a living memorial commemorating lives lost during the pandemic.
