Welcome to Lake Wilderness Arboretum’s website! We’re grateful for your visit and thank you for your support! The new is a work in progress, so visit often for updates!



A huge thank you to all who came out and celebrated with Lake Wilderness Arboretum for our 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend! It was a fine time to make merry. Here are just a few pictures from the Fuchsia Festival, the Fall Plant Sale and the 50th Anniversary Celebration, Friday 11 September & Saturday, 12 September 2015. Thank you so much for your support!



The Lake Wilderness Arboretum Foundation thanks the City of Maple Valley for gifting the organization with a new lawn tractor.

“Our thanks go out to Maple Valley city officials for this essential addition to our equipment shed,” Garden Manager Susan Goodell says. “It’s sure to be a workhorse for us in terms of keeping the Arboretum looking its best.”

Property Manager Bob Walhberg and select volunteers will put the new lawn tractor to use immediately to maintain the Arboretum’s gardens, lawns and meadows.
