Northland Arboretum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to getting the community involved in and aware of nature.  We have a wide, beautiful area for you and your family to explore.   Have a peaceful walk on our nature trails, or take your mountain bike for a ride.   Winter time?  We've got that covered too!   You can cross country ski on our spectacular groomed snow covered trails.   Snowshoe or winter hike on non-groomed trails.




The Savanna Loop of the fitness trail is completed and we have 4 pieces of interactive equipment installed. Come try it out and download the app.

WCCO TV visited the Arboretum to do a story on our fitness trail and the history of the Arb. Mike Binkley did the story. It aired on Sunday Oct 11th at 10 p.m. on "Finding Minnesota". He said he was very impressed with our Arboretum and will help to get the word out about us.

10 Plants that Changed Minnesota

Which plants changed Minnesota and transformed how we live today?

In 2012, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum asked the public to nominate plants for a state's Top 10 list based on their significant impact—positive or negative—on what we eat, the landscape, the economy, our culture, history and more. The initiative aims to build awareness of the crucial role plants play in nourishing and sustaining life on Earth.



The Visitor Center is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm. and Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30 pm.
