The May Arboretum will be closed Sunday temporarily on September 25th from 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm for the May Arboretum Society's fund raising event, "Party In The Garden".

This facility preserves the life and legacy of Wilbur D. May. In addition to his life as an adventurer and world traveler, rancher, artist, pilot, businessman, and Soldier, Wilbur was a committed philanthropist in the community - in particular toward education and well-being for children. The May Center's museum, arboretum, and botanical gardens are places where Wilbur's passion lives on, with fun and learning for visitors of all ages.
