Ever Green Campaign

what it is to be

Timeless. Longstanding. Fiscally sound.

These are the aims of Morris Arboretum's Ever Green campaign: to sustain and grow the Arboretum as a premier public garden and as a center for botanical and horticultural research in Greater Philadelphia and beyond.


Since first opening to the public in 1933, the Arboretum has made careful stewardship of its resources a priority in order to realize its vision to be a thriving public garden, educational reource, and cultural center as well as a leader in plant collection, research, and promotion of environmental stewardship.


Your gift—whether a modest amount or a major commitment—will help Morris Arboretum achieve its mission to promote understanding, conservation, and enjoyment of plants now and for years to come. View our brochure.
