Several years ago, the Arboretum created the Durwood Baggett Contemplation Garden to honor past or present members of the United States Armed Forces. If you have a loved one who has served in the military, this is an enduring way to honor them by engraving a paver which would be placed in the garden. You can also do this in the Tribute Garden, or along the side of the Koi Pond to honor a friend, colleague or loved one. A 6” x 9” paver can be purchased for $200. You can order online or call the Arboretum at 910-798-7660.

In his Saturday morning Star News article (dated August 15, 2020), Lloyd Singleton, director of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Center for New Hanover County, talked about "Spanish moss" in light of Hurricane Isaias. This is an excerpt from that article:
Hurricane Isaias left his mark on our Arboretum grounds last week; an eighty-year-old oak in the picnic area toppled, destructing parts of the picnic shelter, glass greenhouse and tool shed roof. No one was hurt, and structures can be repaired. A few other trees showed damage and otherwise, mostly downed limbs and sticks and leaves and debris resulted...So, as summer breezes continue to blow and hopefully remain more gentle than recent hurricane force strength, we can enjoy our “southern-lovely” Spanish moss swaying in the wind. If you would like to help financially in the repair and reconstruction of our damaged out-buildings, please consider a donation here (see below) or via mail to The Friends of the New Hanover County Arboretum Inc., 6206 Oleander Drive, Wilmington, NC 28403.
