Friends sponsor Forest Gazebo

At the end of 2020, Friends agreed to sponsor the Arboretum's first Forest Pod Gazebo and entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to pay for the structure in four bi-annual installments. The MoU was duly signed at our End-of-Year Friends & NAC party. The Gazebos are a multi-purpose shelter around forest and garden locations throughout the Arboretum environment. The structures are environmentally and aesthetically designed to fit within the landscape. They will provide sun and rain protection, and offer on-site interpretation for visitors, with seating suitable for educational, corporate and tourist groups.
