Welcome to the U.S. National Arboretum

To help protect the public from the spread of COVID-19, public access to all areas of the U.S. National Arboretum (USNA) are CLOSED, beginning Tuesday, March 24, 2020. All USNA activities and tours are suspended until further notice.

USDA continues to closely monitor the situation. We will update the operating status of USNA’s public facilities on our website when it changes.
