The Cora Hartshorn Arboretum and Bird Sanctuary serves as a cultural and educational center for the purpose of fostering, through demonstration and participation, awareness and respect for nature and the environment. Encompassing 16.5 acres in Millburn Township, the Arboretum presents a remarkable picture of biodiversity, particularly fauna and flora native to New Jersey. In 1958, Miss Cora Hartshorn donated this tract of woodlands to the township in the hopes of building public awareness and respect for nature and the environment. Through her remarkable vision, the Arboretum today boasts one of the state’s greatest concentrations of wildflowers, over 150 species, and is home to 45 species of trees, 100 species of birds, rare ferns, and 275-year-old tulip trees.
