Botanical gardens in Hawai'i play an active role in the preservation of our native flora. The Amy Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden, Honolulu Botanical Gardens, Harold H. Lyon Arboretum, National Tropical Botanical Garden, and Waimea Valley are participating institutions in the Center for Plant Conservation's National Collection whose mission is to preserve endangered plants in the United States.

These gardens work together to develop conservation plant collections, to conduct research on propagation of endangered plants and in studies of restoration ecology. The collaborative efforts of these botanical gardens are crucial to the continued existence of Hawai'i's endangered plants.

For more information on botanical gardens, visit the American Public Gardens Association Web site, and visit the Friends of Lyon Arboretum website.

Trees of Wonder

Trees are the oldest and the largest living things on earth.
Some are weird, some extraordinary, some gorgeous, and
some shaped by the human hand to fascinate and amuse. Please enjoy these images–or better yet, take a walk in the woods and greet them in person with appreciation.
