About Us
The Wood County Arboretum covers 23 acres and includes a walking trail, gazebo, sensory garden, shade garden, a waterwise garden, numerous rose and flower beds, and the historic Stinson House, built in 1869.  Our gardens are open year round and are free to the public.  The Stinson House is open by appointment and can be rented for parties and receptions.  We host events monthly. 
Come see what we have to offer!



You can now donate items to the Arboretum through Amazon and Walmart regestries (see links below).  These are some of the items that we will use in 2024 to maintain the Stinson House and the 23-acre venue.  



The gardens are open from every day from dawn to dusk  at the Wood County Arboretum.   You may enter the gardens through the middle gate or the gate in front of the George Bridge.  Pull up the knob at the top of the gate.  They are self-closing.  Please call or e-mail us if questions.

The Stinson House is open for self-guided tours every Wedensday from 9 am to noon.   

There is no fee to tour the gardens or the house although donations are welcomed.

Memberships provide critical support to our work. And a membership provides benefits to you as well. You'll receive discounts at both the spring and fall plant sales.  Members also enjoy early buying opportunities at the sales.

We have three levels of annual memberships:  $25 gives you a 5% discount; $50 gives you a 10% discount; and $100 gives you a 20% discount.  Your membership begins the day you join and expires 365 days later.  We will notify you when your membership is close to expiration.


Because we are a nonprofit, your membership fee is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  And we are proud to say that 100% of your contribution goes to the Arboretum--we are operated 100% by volunteers.
