The Connecticut College Arboretum provides a welcome connection with the natural world, offering opportunities for teaching, research, conservation, recreation and public education.

The Arboretum is open to the public seven days a week from dawn to dusk.

New Arboretum Director Named

We are excited to announce that Miles Schwartz Sax will join us as the new Arboretum director in August. His academic research focuses on issues relating to urban horticulture, tree selection and evaluation, stress physiology and rare plant conservation in the context of an increasingly urbanizing and warming planet. Later this summer, we will set the date for a fall program for Arboretum friends to meet and welcome Miles.
