Meet the usual, the not-so-usual, the native trees and the "where did that come from" trees. The Arboretum encompasses 70 acres where the trees connect the Zoo animal habitats and the beautiful gardens that make up ZooMontana, all on paved pathways. Available any season.  All groups are welcomed both large and small !
