The Arboretum is a special 7-acres in the heart of New Hanover County where homeowners can see the variety of plants that grow in our coastal area as well as emerging trends in plant material.  Cooperative Extension’s “horticulture laboratory”, the Arboretum has a very knowledgeable staff and many volunteers working to make the gardens beautiful and educational.  Come out and discover what makes us so extraordinary!   New Hanover County Center gives our county’s residents easy access to the resources and expertise of NC State University and NC A & T State University.  Through educational programs, publications, and events, Cooperative Extension Agents deliver unbiased, research-based information to New Hanover County citizens.
