The Lake Backwoods Arboretum Foundation(LWAF) is really a nonprofit organization that can serve as steward for Lake Backwoods Arboretum.  The Foundation’s ongoing maintenance and enhancements to forested areas, trails, display gardens and plant collections help give a setting where visitors can also enjoy and focus both natural and cultivated landscapes within an otherwise urban area. As a part of our stewardship, the building blocks will also support horticultural science and conservation by supplying educational possibilities in individuals areas. Our Mission is “Building a sanctuary to inspire, educate and fasten us towards the natural world.”
