There are many reasons to become a member and be a part of the good things happening at Hayes Arboretum.

Hayes Arboretum's mission is to provide nature and recreational education for our visitors, though instruction, experiences and amenities.  Your membership offers financial support for both our educational programs and the care and maintenance of this facility. 

Each year thousands of school children visit for special hikes and utilize some of our unique plant collections, rock & fossil collections and various educational displays.  We provide several miles of hiking and running paths for our visitors though natural wooded areas and open vistas. The features found on this property include 3% of Indiana's old growth forest, many acres of reforested woods, a circa 1833 dairy barn that acts as our Nature Center, Hayes Museum, Adena and Hopewell Indian mounds, ponds, and fields.  Two new man-made wetlands will be coming in 2006.
