The floods following Hurricane Harvey took a toll on the Mercer Arboretum.

The Visitor Center took on over 6 feet of water, and much of the equipment and support buildings were under 4-8 feet of water.

The gardens themselves were left in shambles, and because many of the plantings were non-native, much will have to be replaced.

Join The Arbor Gate in helping with the restoration when representatives from the Mercer Arboretum are with us on Saturday, November 4th from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM. You will be able to:

  • Join the Mercer Society.
  • Give a donation to help with restoration.
