When it’s open It’s free to visit. The Arboretum hosts many events and activities. Some are free and some have a cost associated with them. The cost for many events is low, $5, and free for Arboretum members. You can see all of the events on the calendar.
The adjacent Plant Delights Nursery division sells more than 1,600 different perennials to satisfy even the most jaded gardener. Visit Juniper Level Botanical Garden to see why keen gardeners from around the world plan their vacations to include a visit here.
Juniper Level Botanical Garden and Plant Delights Nursery are only open to the public eight weekends each year for Open Garden and Nursery Days. During these open days, no visit requests are needed, although it helps the garden to know if you’ll be bringing a large bus group so they can properly reserve the needed parking space.

These lectures by Director Mark Weathington take place on Wednesdays at 3 p.m.
