  • What an amazing arboretum! Expansive grounds, great species, beautifully cultivated collections, whether you're a plant geek or just enjoy a beautiful walk, this is THE place to go in Northern Nevada for a walk among the trees. The staff also loves working with educational groups, so consider this for a cool science field trip, too!
  • This is a hidden gem in Reno! The old buildings are preserved. There's a beautiful arboretum, and a fabulous museum which contains Wilbur May's collection of wonderful items he collected in his travels around the world. The citizens of Reno bought this Old Ranch and have converted it into a lovely Oasis.
