Ecotat Gardens and Arboretum is owned and operated by Ecotat Trust, a 501 (c) (3) formed in 1995.

The mission of Ecotat Trust is to preserve and expand the gardens and trails for the enjoyment and use of future generations. The name "Ecotat" was formed by combining portions of the words "ecological" and "habitat" - words describing the 88 acres of land located on Route 2 in Hermon, Maine, at the intersection with Annis Road at the top of Miller Hill.

The acreage is home to over 60 gardens containing 280 varieties of trees, over 1500 varieties of perennials, and an abundance of animals, birds and insects.

Visitors can enjoy tours of the gardens during the growing season, hikes through fall foliage or cross country ski on trails during the winter.

Open daily from dawn to dusk, the gardens are free of charge and offer visitors, members and volunteers alike the opportunity to enjoy, enhance and learn more about Maine's ecological habitat. 

This page is to help raise money for the expansion and continued maintenance of the gardens and arboretum. From simple things such as buying gas in order to keep the lawn areas mowed - to more elaborate things such as creating new garden beds and expanding the plant species included in the gardens - the money raised on this page will help the volunteers that maintian the gardens in many different ways.
