Jasper Arboretum

The Jasper Arboretum, a 14-acre complex sponsored by a coalition of local non-profit organizations and the City of Jasper, is home to a variety of horticulture-related projects including the historic Beaty-Orton House and the Butterfly Gardens.

What they needed

Additional funding to best maintain the facilities and expand to include new developments such as a larger pond, nature train and a log cabin nature center.

What JEDCO provided

JEDCO worked with The Arboretum to acquire a $175,000 grant to fund its expansions.

The Result

The Arboretum is in the planning phases for its new enhancements and developments.
