Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens
The only arboretum and botanical garden in the United States staffed entirely by volunteers, the 52-acre Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens was established in 1980 and continues to grow with the help of more than 300 individuals who maintain the trees, plants, shrubs and seed-gifts, which are all labeled throughout the garden.
This place is truly amazing. It is a fairly good sized place with many different types of plants. It has a waterfall that comes down from a hill and lands into a pond with Japanese carp. It has a fern and Rose garden along with a Japense garden and even a herb garden. The thing that amazes me the most is that all this is done with volunteers. This is 100% volunteer. I reccomend you to see it.
