Annual Appeal


Dear Friends of Hilltop Arboretum, 

What does Hilltop Arboretum mean to you? Picture, momentarily, our community without Hilltop’s fourteen beautiful acres where people of all ages can explore, discover, and learn about Louisiana plants… As 2023 draws to a close, we need you to help make it possible to plant trees, install signage, establish new walking paths, cultivate native shrubs and wildflowers in our meadow, and provide enriching educational opportunities for the entire community, adults and children alike. 

 Hilltop’s future is in your hands!
