Adkins Arboretum in engaged in a multi-year capital campaign, The Campaign to Build a Green Legacy, to build a new Arboretum Center, create an ecologically sensitive Native Garden Gateway, and provide endowment funds to support new and existing educational programs. To date, nearly $4 million has been raised toward these objectives.
The cornerstone of the campaign is the new W. Flaccus and Ruth B. Stifel Center at Adkins Arboretum, which will contribute to the economic vitality and quality of life of the Eastern Shore.
The new Center involves the expansion of the existing Visitor’s Center to include
• the Caroline Pavilion for educational programs and events,
• the Van Dyke Classroom and Resource Center to house the Arboretum’s herbarium, and comprehensive collection of horticulture, gardening and landscape design books and materials,
• the Marion Price Gallery for nature-inspired art exhibits, and
• an outdoor classroom for school, scout and summer camp programs for children.
The renovation of the existing building creates new office space, new public restrooms and additional meeting space.
