Arboretum Faculty and Class Use Policy

Faculty can pre-arrange to hold outdoor classes, lectures, outdoor living botanical and environmental laboratory activities, or any curriculum-related activity on the arboretum grounds after reserving with arboretum events staff. The arboretum will facilitate faculty and JMU group use in such a manner so that the university activity does not experience any disruption or conflict with non-university public and community events and activities at the arboretum, or arboretum programs, sales, and events scheduled at the arboretum.

The arboretum administration's facility scheduling is intended to provide faculty and JMU organizations the best-use of the grounds and buildings of James Madison University's 125 acres of living botanical laboratory. The arboretum administration is grateful for JMU faculty and group users for submitting their reservation form provided in the link below.
