Jensen-Olson Arboretum Advisory Board
Welcome to our newest members: Bridget Weiss with Juneau Schools, Shawn Eisele, Executive Director of Discovery Southeast, and Nell McConahey, Artist.
23 miles from downtown Juneau sits a jewel. The Jensen-Olson Arboretum is a public garden featuring over 950 species of plants. It’s a source of inspiration to residents and visitors alike. Right now the “show” out the road is taking a winter break, and you are invited to a preview of what is coming. During the month of February, KTOO will host a show of Arboretum photographs by Merrill Jensen and paintings by Sharon Lobaugh and Jane Stokes – local artists who have been inspired by the natural beauty of the facility.
If you have any questions, please call the Arboretum at 789-0139, Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm.
Recent minutes are available in PDF format for the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader (available [here]).
The Arboretum is open to the Public Year-round, Wednesday through Sunday 9:00am-5:00pm.
Located at 23035 Glacier Highway-Mile 23 (just less than a mile north of the Shrine of St. Therese).
The Jensen-Olson Arboretum is a virtual living laboratory of more than 250 species and cultivars situated on the garden’s magnificent 17 acres. Bequeathed to the City & Borough by master gardener extraordinaire Caroline Jensen, specimen primrose and lilac plants are among the garden’s earthly delights.
