The Arboretum at Trochu
Carole Anne Holmstrom
WHAT IS AN ARBORETUM?
An Arboretum is a place where an extensive variety of woody plants are cultivated for scientific, educational and ornamental purposes.
Founded in 1989 by the Trochu and District Arboretum Society, the Arboretum and Gardens at Trochu are located on a five acre site in the middle of the prairies. On display are many trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Because of the wide variety of trees and plants, there is always something in bloom during the spring and summer months at the Arboretum. The Interpretive Centre is home to various displays.
This unique outdoor classroom demonstrates the importance of nature to our lives and the lives of animals. We welcome all types of volunteers to participate in making our Arboretum look its best. If working outdoors in a beautiful setting is something your interested in, be it weeding, pruning, or maintenance and development of new areas call us at 403-588-8600. Young, old or in between all volunteers will find a niche in the Arboretum.
