Our Education Programs

The Arboretum’s 209 acres–which incorporate diverse ecological habitats from riparian meadows to oak savannas, and open plateaus to forested hillsides–feature an unparalleled mixture of native and introduced trees, shrubs, wildflowers, mosses, lichens, and other species.

One of our missions is to reconnect the community with the native ecosystems through education and immersion. MPA hosts a number of programs annually, offering many opportunities for visitors to learn more about the Arboretum.

Mount Pisgah Arboretum invites you to participate in our many  programs:

School Field Trips:

Each Spring and Fall, 3000 K-5th grade students hike the Arboretum trails with trained nature guides and participate in environmental education activities and games.

The Arboretum’s Discovery Tours Program, established in 1981, is the largest and longest-running environmental education program of its kind in Lane County.
