Jensen-Olson Arboretum Showing
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. Please join us during a reception hosted by Friends of the Jensen-Olson Arboretum this First Friday, February 6th at KTOO, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. as we celebrate this gift to Juneau.
Will Clausen (Clausonii procerus) and Chelsie Harris (Argillia kenaiesis) have successfully cultivated, weeded, planted, collected, fertized and pruned for two seasons in every kind of weather - yes, even snow. Their love for the plants and space is evident as you walk the well-tended grounds. Welcoming visitors is also something they both enjoy doing. When you see them working in the flower beds be sure to thank them for their hard work and devotion to Juneau's Arboretum!
