Summer Camp Registration is Underway
The sounds of play and laughter from summer camp fill the JCRA’s gardens all summer long. Your camper can be part of our fun-filled summer camps if you register now! Sign your child up for a summer of exploring the gardens, solving mysteries, cooking up healthy treats from fresh produce, or creating artwork inspired by the gardens.
Make sure that your child spends time this summer digging deep into the environment. Their time in our gardens will be the start to a lifelong love of nature!

Help Put JC Raulston Arboretum in the Spotlight
JCRA's Moonlight in the Garden event opened our eyes to the growth potential of having events after dark. We would like you to join our initiative to bring permanent landscape lighting and improvements to one of the South's great gardens.
Landscape lighting is an investment in the Arboretum's future—and the future of gardening. We've included a list of improvements that will help attract more rental opportunities at our gardens and the Ruby C. McSwain Education Center. Facilities rentals are the greatest source of revenue for the JCRA's programs. Please consider helping us make them a reality.
