On Wednesday, May 2, the Boone County Arboretum celebrated its 25th anniversary. Supporters, leaders, volunteers, and residents came together to reminisce about how far the Arboretum has come in its short history and how much there is to look forward to.

The Arboretum has played an important role in our county for the past 25 years and will continue to do so.
