The Brenton Arboretum: Past, Present, and Future, by Melissa Burdick, Executive Director. Nestled in the heart of Dallas County farmland, The Brenton Arboretum is one of Iowa's premier botanical collections.

Plus, enjoy a sneak peek at the exciting projects in store for the future of the Arboretum with a glimpse at the newly updated master plan.
