Get Involved

Your support will help restore the beauty of Baldwin Lake, a beloved and magnificent part of the Arboretum's natural and cultural heritage.


Baldwin Lake in the 1880s was a pristine body of water where visitors drifted leisurely in boats, fish flourished in its deep waters and a variety of water fowl found refuge. Much has changed.

A Lake Finds a Future

Thanks to L.A. Supervisor Kathryn Barger, the restoration of Baldwin Lake proceeds.
