The Delbert Hunter
and Botanic Garden
Dallas, Oregon

Since 1983, Friends of the Delbert Hunter Arboretum and Botanic Garden, a non-profit organization, has planned and developed a recreational and educational resource with the Dallas city park.

Here is a unique opportunity to see a living museum of Native plants. The varied terrain of the Arboretum provides ecological niches suited to perennials, conifers, oaks, wetland species and dryland desert plants.

Recently added is a rock garden of native Lewisia plants honoring Viola Sobolik, the first curator. Go to the extreme south end of the park to see this site.

The Arboretum is open year-round. Tours are self-guided. Identification and interpretive signs enable visitors to appreciate the variety of Oregon trees, shrubs and flowers. Many of these specimens are seldom found so accessible.

The Arboretum Center provides a meeting room free for use by local schools, colleges, garden clubs, etc. Please phone (503) 623-7359 to schedule use of the building.
