If you would like to receive information about Arboretum events, news about the Arboretum, and other items of interest, you can subscribe to the Friends of the Arboretum listserv. The list will not be shared or sold. To subscribe to the listserv mailing list, send an email to LISTSERV@bama.ua.edu with SUBSCRIBE FOA in the body of the email. Do not add anything else to the email; you don’t even need to give the email a subject. You should receive a confirmation telling you that you have been added and explaining the various functions of the listserv.
You can also support the Arboretum through your annual gift. Annual giving helps ensure that the Arboretum will be able to continue its public educational programs, improve its facilities, and build its collection of plants. For more information on annual giving programs, contact the Arboretum at (205) 553 – 3278.
