WASHINGTON, NEW JERSEY 07882
Pohatcong Native Arboretum, Native Tree Museum of New Jersey, has an exhibition on display of over 160 species of native trees, shrubs, and vines. The plants are identified by plaques with common, family, genus, and species names. Between 2010 and 2015 our plant collection was tripled.
Pohatcong Native Arboretum is a Native American inspired sanctuary that honors our "Local Roots" both plants and people. The public arboretum features native woody plants organized by botanical family, Native American elements, forested wetlands, sculpture gardens in the making, and a log cabin with an art gallery.
This extraordinary place is an educational, scientific, and aesthetic wonder founded in 2002 by a grant through Rutgers University. The arboretum is located in Pohatcong Creek Natural Area, Washington Township, Warren County.
