2017 PERENNIAL REPORT

Greeting from the President
I invite you to take a look at this 2017 Perennial Report of The Morton Arboretum, which includes a video about accomplishments, a financial summary, and a listing of donors who so generously supported our mission to save and plant trees for a greener, healthier, and more beautiful world. The video covers highlights of Arboretum programs and services, showing the scope of our efforts in science and conservation, education, and plant collections. 

The year was a success as we continued progress and made an impact as The Champion of Trees. Thank you for making this work and these achievements possible!

With appreciation,
