In 2014, the Holden Arboretum and Cleveland Botanical Garden joined forces to have a greater impact on the community than either could on its own. The integrated organization – now known as Holden Forests & Gardens – pursues that goal through urban greening and forestry initiatives, environmental research, educational programs, and world-class visitor experiences at the Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, Ohio and Cleveland Botanical Garden in Cleveland’s University Circle cultural district. Our mission, vision, and link to our strategic plan can be found below.
Advance and inspire a deeper understanding of plants to enhance life.
Vibrant green communities and diverse native forests of the Great Lakes region will flourish and sustain life.
