Your membership in The James M. Cox, Jr. Arboretum Foundation enables us to achieve steady and deliberate growth, much like the trees we care so deeply about.

Thanks to our dedicated members, we are able to:

  • Share the wonders of nature with more than 650,000 visitors annually
  • Host over 5,300 local students for educational programs and tours throughout the year
  • Teach the nearly 50,000 visitors who tour the Butterfly House each summer about the habitats and lifecycles of more than 20 species of native Ohio butterflies and moths

All gifts, large and small, help us advance our mission of connecting people with nature, and we offer a range of membership levels to suit your needs. Learn more about the benefits of membership.
