Croton Arboretum

The Arboretum will be closed temporarily due to damage caused by the recent snowstorm. The gate at the end of Fox Road will be locked and residents are urged not to hike in until the parking area and trails can be cleared and dangerous hanging branches cut down. A public announcement will be made when the Arboretum reopens.

EMERGENCY APPEAL FOR FUNDS!

“We are appealing to the Croton community for funds to help pay for the clean-up and remedial planting we urgently need to do,” said Arboretum president Karen Jescavage-Bernard. “The record setting amount we raised with this year’s garden tour was to be spent on improvements, but the severe storms this summer, Hurricane Irene and now this freak snowstorm have caused so much damage that improvements will have to wait unless we can raise more funds. Contributions of any amount are welcome–particularly large ones.”

To make a tax deductible contribution, send your check, payable to The Croton Arboretum and Sanctuary Inc., to:
