The Hughson Arboretum is currently engaged in a campaign to raise $120,000 with a generous $50,000 Matching Grant from John and June Rogers. Funds would be spent on the following items :
> Site Fencing

          Ongoing vandalism is a serious problem.

          Install a 6'-0" high steel security fence with gates at the perimeter of the 12 acre site.

> Irrigation System Upgrades

           Increase supply lines. System repairs and maintenance.

           Install two new hose bibbs with irrigation stubs for new planters.

> Pathway Upgrades

            Start resurfacing existing Interpretive Trail with decomposed granite.         

            Create two new planters for flowers and shrubbery to embellish existing walkways.

            Prune existing trees as needed to clear the trail path.

> Event Lawn

             Create a  6,000 – 8,000 SF lawn area for Hughson Arboretum events.
