University of Idaho Arboretum & Botanical Garden

Mission Statement

The University of Idaho Arboreta are outdoor museums maintained for the acquisition and proper curation of a living collection of native and introduced plants hardy in the Inland Pacific Northwest. As a primary reference collection, the arboreta will emphasize plant variation and genetic diversity. Highest priority of the arboreta is to develop, curate, and maintain a diverse collection of cultivars and species of known origin.

As educational facilities, goals of the University of Idaho Arboreta are to:

  • provide a site for instruction in botany, horticulture, forestry, landscape architecture, environmental sciences, and other fields related to the living collection; 
  • encourage authorized research in fields such as plant hardiness, systematics, and hybridization;
  • educate the public through field trips, lectures, and tours;
  • provide to the public a restful, beautiful environment for the purpose of gaining knowledge and appreciation of the importance of plants.
