Nebraska Statewide Arboretum (NSA)

Nebraska Statewide Arboretum (NSA)

A gift to the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum Fund supports an endowment that generates annual support for existing programs and for innovative new projects.

The Nebraska Statewide Arboretum is a program of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources dedicated to community development and environmental quality. The vision, values and aspirations of this program are summed up in the theme Every Town a Garden, which declares commitment to

the greening of every community in the state, making each a more attractive, healthy, vital place to live, work and visit.

The impacts of NSA are statewide in scope. The NSA network of arboretums and public gardens, unique in the nation, encompasses more than 80 host communities across Nebraska. Grant programs administered by NSA have had an even more far-reaching impact, delivering funding to more than 200 Nebraska communities for public landscaping projects involving parks, schools, libraries, business districts and other places important to community life. Finally, NSA promotes the use of water-conserving practices and plants through the GreatPlants Program, which brings new Nebraska-hardy trees, shrubs, wildflowers and other landscape plants to consumers each year.
