JMU Class Use
Bring your JMU Class to the Arboretum!

As JMU's 125 acre living botanical laboratory, we welcome JMU faculty to hold curriculum-based outdoor classes, research activities, and lectures on the arboretum grounds. Please communicate your desired use or reserve a facility space for class for free by filling out our JMU Class Use Form. Reserving a space allows the arboretum to facilitate the best-use of the grounds and buildings.
