About the UUCCH Arboretum

The Mission of the UUCCH Arboretum is to:

• Steward and preserve the UUCCH Arboretum's 17 acres while fostering an ecologically sound land ethic regarding the woody plants and trees that have been developed and cared for and curated by Ken Arnold and the Congregation before us, so that we may pass on this stewardship to the generations that follow.

• Make accessible a natural environment that invites spiritual renewal

• Provide opportunities for education, environmental literacy and connections to the natural world that motivate responsible environmental decisions

• Model practices of sustainable land use and conservation

The Vision of the UUCCH Arboretum is to:

• Provide and make known a horticultural facility for the benefit and pleasure of the congregation and an interested public.

• Preserve open space in a densely populated county and municipality

• Preserve and further develop the UUCCH Arboretum to benefit the church educationally, spiritually, culturally socially and financially.
