“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” – John Muir from My First Summer in the Sierra
What is it that holds us together – as people, as a nation, or as the vast web of life that spans this vibrant planet? It can be many things; a shared interest or a common goal, a need for support, both given and received, or a desire to be part of something larger than ourselves. But, no matter the reason, one thing is certain – together, we are greater than the sum of our parts.
By reaching out and engaging in the community we can all grow our resilience, learn from one another, and find strength and support. Whatever brings you to Tyler Arboretum, virtually or in person, you are welcome here. Join us to explore new interests, seek solace in nature, and find a community of people seeking the same things. Together we can grow a sustainable, vibrant future. Together we can steward this beautiful land we call home. Together we can make a difference – not just in our backyards, but around the world.
