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!

Upcoming events:


Join us this spring for free monthly mini-workshops. We'll be hosting these on Saturdays at the Stinson House at the Wood County Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, from 9:00 until 10:30. Here's a list of topics and dates for the first quarter of 2020:

• March 21:     Texas Gardening 101

Participation is free, but you must register via email (woodcountyarbo@gmail.com) to reserve your seat and ensure we have enough materials.


** If you can't make a Saturday session, we'll repeat each of these the following Wednesday at 9:15. **

​Open Year-Round
Become a Friend of the Arboretum


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. Friends of the Arboretum also receive $5 coupons that can be used at the plant sales when they attend any of the our Nature University or Creative University classes.  

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.
