Welcome to Our Official Web Site

Northland Arboretum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to getting the community involved in and aware of nature.  We have a wide, beautiful area for you and your family to explore.   Have a peaceful walk on our nature trails, or take your mountain bike for a ride.   Winter time?  We've got that covered too!   You can cross country ski on our spectacular groomed snow covered trails.   Snowshoe or winter hike on non-groomed trails.


The 2 mile fitness trail with interactive equipment installed will be open to members the end of this June.

The Arboretum has made great strides in completing our new Accessible Wellness Fitness Trail. The completed trail will be ADA-compliant and include 12 fitness stations for stretching, cardio, balance and strength training.



The Sour Grapes half & half run first started in 2001. A group of runners were unable to secure a spot in the Grandma's Marathon for that year. As a result, they decided to organize a run that would be fun, challenging and a means to enjoy the company of other enthusiastic runners; hence, the birth of Sour Grapes half & half. This years races include a half marathon run, a 10.55K run/walk, a kids mile run, and a kids half mile run.

Results will be posted for your races AFTER the event at these two links.

HALF MARATHON    -     10.55K

Proceeds from the event are donated to the Northland Arboretum.
