Sign up early!  Classes fill quickly. Check the online calendar of classes to see if seats are available and for the latest additions/corrections to classes and changes to the schedule which may not appear in the printed catalog. Class fees are due at registration; space in a class cannot be held without payment.  

  • You will receive a confirmation via the email address you provide.
  • If you have questions, please contact the Arboretum Registrar at 828-665-2492. Please note that we may not be available immediately, though we return phone messages as soon as possible.
  • If a class is full and has a waiting list, add it to your shopping cart as additional sections may be added from time to time.
