“We hope to continue to develop the Arboretum into a destination site for people from all over Canada to come to visit to enjoy and learn about the unique trees, flowers, and gardens found at the Arboretum and to walk and reflect in a beautiful natural setting about Canadians who have fallen in their service to Canada.

As a non-profit run by volunteers, 100% of your contributions go towards these efforts.”
