Mission Statement

To maintain a living museum for the enjoyment, education and inspiration of all people.


Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden is a 155-acre living museum filled with spectacular gardens and rare trees. There's beauty ine very season, from fragrant magnolia groves in spring and a butterfly garden in summer to the brilliant colors of fall and snow-capped evergreens in winter.

A 1.8 mile, handicapped-accessible paved path winds through the arboretum, plus many secondary chipped trails for hiking, running and cross-country skiing. Kids will have fun navigating the hedge maze and greeting Klehmintine and Cow-li-flower, our mascots, in the Children's Garden. With events, programs and educational opportunities year round, Klehm is ready for you to explore.
