Jenkins Arboretum

Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens is one of eastern Pennsylvania’s great horticultural and environmental assets. As a botanical garden, the Arboretum maintains a collection of trees, shrubs, wildflowers and ferns in a tranquil, naturalistic landscape. In addition, the Arboretum features a diverse collection of rhododendrons and azaleas from around the world. The unique landscape and diverse plant collections provide sanctuary for a variety of birds, insects and other wildlife.

In 2009 the Arboretum completed construction of the John J. Willaman Education Center. The Education Center is a LEED gold certified “green” building that will serve as an activity hub for many years to come.

The grounds at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens are open to the public 365 days a year from 8:00 am to sunset and the John J. Willaman Education Center is open every day from 9:00am – 4:00pm. Admission is free.

For the past 25 years I have lived a couple of minutes from Jenkins so for me it has been a prime location for photography, as well as workshops and a place to show my work.
