Jensen-Olson Arboretum Advisory Board (JOAAB)

UPDATE 5/1/2023: JOAAB was dissolved in 2023. Please refer to the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board.

The Jensen-Olson Arboretum Advisory Board meets quarterly on the second Wednesday at 5:15 p.m. via Zoom webinar unless otherwise noted.

The Board will advise on the Arboretum’s guiding vision as provided by Caroline Jensen, “to provide the people of Juneau a place that both teaches and inspires learning in horticulture, natural sciences, and landscaping; to preserve the beauty of the landscape for pure aesthetic enjoyment; to maintain the historic and cultural context of the place and its people.” The board shall advise and assist the Director of Parks and Recreation on issues including, but not limited to, capital campaigns and fund raising, and programmatic direction consistent with the guiding vision above.
