What is the Riggs Arboretum?

Established in 1887 by John Walter Riggs, the Riggs Arboretum at Waterloo is one of the oldest arboretums west of the Mississippi River.  Seventy mature varieties of trees from many parts of the world grow here. The ten-acre site is home to several Kansas Champion trees including Loblolly pine, Yellowwood and Laurel oak.  

A group of volunteers maintains the arboretum at the Spring and Fall Work Days by

  • striving to remove and control invasive plants around 70 different specimen trees
  • building mulch covered walking trails
  • installing tree identification plaques
  • constructing native hardwood benches and picnic tables
  • publishing self-guided tour booklets and informational brochures

Walk our paths and study one of the richest collections of trees hidden in a quiet spot away from the chaos of life.  Call to schedule your group's visit.   

  • Public & Private School Groups
  • Home School Groups
  • Scout Troops
  • 4-H Clubs
  • Church Groups
  • Garden Clubs

Please, take only memories and leave only your footprints behind.
