The Northland Arboretum encompasses over 500 acres in the heart of Brainerd/Baxter, Minnesota. This member-supported, non-profit organization was founded with the closure of the Brainerd Landfill in 1972. Left untouched, the 40-acre landfill site now supports a grassland. The arboretum owns a beautiful Norway Pine Plantation to the north and leases land from Crow Wing County behind the Westgate Mall. The Nature Conservancy owns nearly 200 acres within the arboretum boundaries.
Areas of interest at the Northland Arboretum include several demonstration gardens by the Visitor Center, the Monet Bridge & Pond, the DNR Landscaping for Wildlife project, the Secret Garden and many flower beds maintained by our valuable volunteers.
