Master Plan


In 2015 the Yakima Area Arboretum’s Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and community members undertook the challenge of creating a document that would help guide the future development and growth of the Arboretum.  Over the next five years these dedicated individuals gathered information, conducted research, went on site visits, and hired AHBL Landscape Architecture to help finalize the project.  Once hired, AHBL took us even further by engaging with staff, board members, a stakeholder group and the wider community.  The Master Plan was completed in March of 2020.
