Mount Pisgah Arboretum
At Mount Pisgah Arboretum, we believe that the more people are inspired to learn about and engage with the natural world, the more they will value and preserve it for future generations. We’ve been teaching people about nature since 1973. Each year, people of all ages discover the wonders of Southern Willamette Valley ecology on our guided nature walks and at our workshops, on our school field trips and at our annual Wildflower & Music Festival and Mushroom Festival. Learn more about OUR HISTORY.
The Arboretum is a nonprofit organization that relies on community support from hundreds of volunteers and members to maintain a 209-acre nature facility at the heart of the 2200-acre Howard Buford Recreation Area. We lease these 209 acres from Lane County. The largest portion of our funding comes from individual donations and memberships.
