    Description

Our Mission:

"The Arboretum, an integral part of the University of Guelph, has a mandate to promote education, research and outreach."
-- (Arboretum Master Plan, December 2004)

The Arboretum at the University of Guelph is somewhat modeled after the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University which is 100 years older.

Plantings started in 1971 and are now maturing to produce a beautiful landscape, within which The Arboretum continues to develop specialized gardens, botanical collections, and gene conservation programs. Labels are maintained at the base of all woody plants in the collections that are listed on The Arboretum map.

The Arboretum spans 165 hectares (408 acres) with 8.2 km of signed trails. Observed at The Arboretum are 38 species of mammals, 188 species of birds, 39 species of butterflies, 18 herptiles (reptiles and amphibians) and 1,700 types of trees and shrubs. Almost every tree and shrub indigenous to southern Ontario is growing at The Arboretum.

Hours:

Mon. - Thurs 8:30am - 3:15pm
Fri. 8:30am - 1:30pm
