Heaps Peak Arboretum

Volunteers are always
welcome at
Heaps Peak
Each year more
than 100,000
forest visitors benefit
from ROWIA's
activities and
you can be a part
of the team.


Activities at the Arboretum include two native plant sales, one in the spring and one in the fall, usually Memorial Day Saturday and Labor Day Saturday. Some non-native plants may be included if they grow well at elevations of 4000 feet or higher. Dogwoods are usually sold at the spring sale.  In the fall, we sell shrubs such as flannel bush and mountain mahogany. Check our newsletter for dates and times.

The Arboretum welcomes community groups such as Girl and Boy Scouts to participate in or initiate projects at our site.  Other groups and individuals have helped with maintenance. Recently, for Eagle Scout projects one built a bulletin board and another repainted and repaired the bridges and benches. Girl Scouts did several displays. One of them was to explain the use of the QR codes that were installed recently near the front of the Arboretum. The other displays are of the Fire History and the Geology of the mountains, and they can be found in the Gazebo.

Guided tours of the Sequoia Trails are available. Use the "contact" tab above to schedule your request.
