The University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum
"I come to the Gardens for my health, the serenity of nature, and the company of kindred souls."
Beverly Mosely,
Garden Volunteer
Winter is a great time to take a stroll and appreciate the conifers along the trails at the Arb and Gardens. If you wish to avoid the chill of winter, stop into the Conservatory at the Gardens to experience the sights and smells of plants from all over the world.
