Arboretum

Brys Park, a 17.3-acre park in the southeast corner of St. Clair Shores, hosts various uses, including a playground, sports fields, a dog park, and disc golf. In the 1990s, an arboretum was created in the park's northwest corner.

In 2022, St. Clair Shores City Council approved an agreement with ReLeaf Michigan to re-establish the arboretum. As part of that effort, the city hired Davey Resource Group to conduct a tree inventory of Brys Park and develop an arboretum plan and inventory summary report.

Purpose

The Brys Arboretum serves as a public arboretum and passive recreational area, allowing visitors to engage with nature and enjoy its beauty. As an educational space, the arboretum promotes an understanding of the relationship between plants, people, and place through programs that integrate science. It also offers outreach services to community institutions and residents of St. Clair Shores and beyond.

Objectives

  • Education: Promote the use of the arboretum as an educational resource to raise awareness and knowledge about climate change, species preservation, utility compatible species and air filtration.
  • Combat Climate Change: Utilize the arboretum as a means to actively combat climate change through the benefits that trees provide to the ecosystem, such as sequestering and storing carbon dioxide.
  • Attraction: Position the arboretum as an enticing attraction to draw visitors to the park and the city, enhancing its overall appeal and visitor experience.
  • Species Preservation: Serve as a repository for preserving various species for future generations, safeguarding biodiversity and ecosystem health.
  • Air Filtration: Leverage the arboretum's strategic location adjacent to the freeway to effectively filter and improve air quality in the surrounding area, contributing to a healthier environment.
  • Engagement: Enable authorized volunteer groups and/or individuals to aid in the upkeep and preservation of trees within the arboretum while also providing opportunities for passive recreation and community building.
