About the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum

Our mission is to "enrich lives through the beauty and wonder of plants."

An arboretum is a living museum where a collection of trees and other plants is assembled and maintained for education, research and enjoyment. Rather than bound to a single place, the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum is a remarkable network of arboretum sites, parks, historic properties and other public landscapes located in dozens of communities across the state.

Linked together and supported by the Arboretum office at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, this unique statewide network makes the Arboretum accessible and relevant to citizens across Nebraska.
