Holden Forests & Gardens Tribute Program

The beauty and serenity of Holden Forests & Gardens’ two campuses, Cleveland Botanical Garden and the Holden Arboretum, offer a unique opportunity to pay tribute to a loved one, commemorate a milestone, or honor a friend. Whether it’s a special message listed in our virtual garden (coming soon!) or a bench nestled into the perfect spot in the Gardens, tributes recognize all the important occasions that fill our lives:

  • Birthdays
  • Marriages
  • Anniversaries
  • Graduations
  • Retirements
  • Memorials

Contact Katie Brickner today for any questions you may have or to schedule a tour: 216.707.2852 or [email protected].
