Jensen-Olson Arboretum Images
Welcome to the Jensen-Olson Arboretum Website
Jensen-Olson Arboretum -- 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 is hosting 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. Drop by KTOO during business hours for this virtual experience.
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!
