Summer Appeal

Help us evolve and transform.

Dear Friends of Klehm,

Have you been to Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden lately?  Rockford’s living museum continues to evolve and transform, like Rockford, change happens over time and is the product of hard work and positive attitudes.  You can see change, but change can be exciting when you can feel the energy of many hands engaged in a common cause.

Whether a regular volunteer, a financial supporter or both, together we are affecting change, as both are essential to carry out our mission at Klehm.

Exciting projects have been initiated like the sensory garden, contemporary perennial garden and oak grove restoration.  All significant changes adding to the diversity of the arboretum and the botanic gardens.

All gifts to the Summer Appeal will go directly to supporting the grounds allowing staffing of the garden crew and supplies needed for the multiple annual planting of beds, planters and baskets keeping the grounds fresh and seasonal

Your generous gift will be used to support our mission and help Klehm move forward with long term restoration projects, and maintenance.  Please help us support our mission to maintain a living museum for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of all people.  Your gift will make a difference!


Daniel S. Riggs

Executive Director
Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden
P.S. Your contribution goes to direct support of the arboretum, gardens and programs!
