MAKE A MEMORY :: Memorials and Celebrations

Thank you for considering honoring a loved one with a Dubuque Arboretum Memorial. In addition to monetary donations, there are several different options to donate in a more tangible, visible way.


Add your own personalized garden brick or paver to a Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens pathway.

A garden brick or paver is an inscribed brick, inlaid in one of the Arboretum’s lovely garden pathways and walkways. It’s a unique way to:

  • remember a loved one,
  • honor a dear friend,
  • commemorate a baby’s birth, or
  • celebrate one of life’s great moments.

Professionally engraved with your personal information. 

Donation: $250 to $750
