Juniper Level Botanic Garden Endowment
A former student of J. C. Raulston, Tony Avent was inspired by J. C.’s passion for plants and botanical exploration. With this passion in mind, Tony build a 28 acre research garden with a highly sophisticated plant breeding program, a world-class plant collection, and a dedicated emphasis on plant conservation. Tony and Anita Avent have gifted their award-winning Juniper Level Botanic Garden to NC State’s JC Raulston Arboretum. This partnership brings together two renowned institutions to create a one-of-a-kind resource for plant research, conservation, education, and appreciation that benefits our state, the nation, and the world. The establishment of the Juniper Level Botanic Garden Endowment will provide the income needed to ensure that the Juniper Level Botanic Garden will reach its full potential! Consider supporting the endowment that will bring many new opportunities to the Arboretum.
