About Friends of the Arboretum

The Friends of the New Hanover County Arboretum (i.e. The Friends) was created as a non-profit, 501 c (3) fund raising organization in 1986. Since then, it has provided financial support to the New Hanover County Arboretum for the maintenance of its gardens and their improvement. Over the years, it has supported special projects like the creation of the Contemplation Garden, improvements to the Children’s Garden (which will be completed this year), and the educational programs of Extension.

The Friends’ major fundraiser each year is the Art in the Arboretum Show and Sale which helps assure the Arboretum’s continuing development and preservation.
