is a 47-acre garden dedicated to promoting horticultural and environmental awareness through displays, education and research. The Arboretum was dedicated in November, 1996, and boasts one of Virginia’s finest trail systems that wanders through a 43-acre mature hardwood forest with many varieties of trees and plants.
On the grounds of the farmhouse that serves as the Arboretum Headquarters building are a number of theme gardens, including fragrance and antique rose gardens, as well as several demonstration gardens. Periodic events are held on our grounds, including Arbor Day, Our annual Garden Party, a “Junior Gardeners” class for children, Walk-a-thons, etc. The Arboretum won two 1999 Chesapeake environmental awards: The Adult Community Organization Award, and the Mayor’s Outstanding Service Award.
The Chesapeake Arboretum is non-profit and depends on donations, contributions, volunteers and membership dues. Call us at (757) 382-7060 to see how you might volunteer your services. Support your Arboretum by becoming a member, and receive our newsletter to keep informed about our activities.
