Who We Are
The Markham Regional Arboretum Society (MRAS) is a citizen-
Along with donations and grants, funds to develop the park come from the MRAS Nursery plant sales. Volunteers grow plants from seeds and cuttings. These are offered to the public for sale on select Saturdays throughout the year.
Our mission is to protect and enhance the park’s plants for the benefit of all visitors.
Our goals are:
- Maintaining and developing a diverse living collection of plants especially suited to our local environment;
- Providing a botanically rich and serene space for all visitors to be proud of;
- Promoting public understanding and appreciation of plants and the natural world;
- Raising awareness of how people impact our planet and what anyone can do to make it healthier for everyone.
