We are very proud of our many collections of plants. We offer you the chance to see plants you may have never seen before, or offer you a new look at the plants that grow right in our own backyards.


We take great care to ensure that our grounds are always well maintained and beautiful for you to enjoy.


There are several collections we maintain on our grounds, which allow you to travel from the island of Madagascar through the rainforests and back to the native redwoods that inhabit Northern California. To truly enjoy our grounds for all they are worth, you need to visit. Bring your camera, as there is always something that will catch your eye.


Guided Nature Tours:

Take a guided tour of the Arboretum grounds with one of our nature guides! On the 2nd and 4th Saturday of most months a free nature guide tour is held beginning at 10am from the Nature Center building. No registration required.


Heritage House Tours

You are invited to travel back in time inside the walls of our turn of the century Victorian heritage house. This local treasure, which once served as a doctor’s office and home, will help you understand the history of 1890’s Orange County. Heritage House tours occur most Saturdays and Sundays between 2pm and 4pm. Meet at Heritage House. Heritage House is closed the months of January and August.
