Description of Agency
Tyler Arboretum's mission is to preserve, develop, and share our diverse horticultural, historical, and natural site resources in order to stimulate an understanding of the living world. Tyler Arboretum remains intact since its institutional founding in 1946, with its natural and historic resources protected for the public benefit. For almost half a century, tens of thousands of school children have learned about the environment and the importance of preserving plant and animal diversity. The Arboretum's natural areas, over 450 acres, continue to help protect the watershed for Ridley Creek, and the entire 650-acre parcel serves as a buffer for wildlife threatened by suburban development.
