While most people value nature, few of us take the time to actually enjoy and connect with our natural environment. The Robert J. Huckshorn Arboretum provides our community with a unique opportunity to explore that connection. The Arboretum highlights our Florida eco-systems by featuring native trees and shrubs. Pathways wind their way thorugh the landscape, inviting the local community to explore and enjoy this peaceful haven. Benches are scattered throughout, allowing visitors a chance to slow down and take pleasure in a moment of solitude in their otherwise hectic daily lives.
The Arboretum is named after Dr. Robert J. Huckshorn, who,after playing a number of key roles at Florida Atlantic University, currently serves as Vice President Emeritus of FAU's MacArthur Campus. When Dr. Huckshorn retired, the University set aside a part of the campus to be dedicated as an Arboretum in honor of his many years of service. His vision for the Arboretum is that it feature native Florida plants and become a resource for teaching and research on the MacArthur Campus.
This group is for anyone who is interested in supporting this unique natural resource on FAU's Jupiter campus. Add Robert J Huckshorn Arboretum to your Jupiter travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Jupiter travel planner.

A pleasant little place to visit if you have an interest in native plants. Feels meditative with inscribed benches, and pleasantly- shade. Surrounded by FAU honors campus which makes for a nice walk..... more »
On the FAU campus in Abacoa, across the street from the Courtyard Hotel and the Baseball stadium. Nice place to visit with a bag lunch on a cool January after noon. more »
