Autumn's gold brightens the borders of agricultural lands that will become the Arboretum.


Arboretum Advisory Committee


Members of the Arboretum Advisory Committee are faculty and senior staff who serve at the request of the Arboretum's director. They provide assistance in four ways:

  1. Participating in formal planning efforts (e.g., master plan for the landscape and botanic gardens), particularly as representatives of their academic or professional interests;

  2. Serving as a conduit to colleagues for information related to Arboretum planning and development;

  3. Providing advice to the director on issues related to Arboretum development and management; and

  4. Participating actively in special projects within the Arboretum as interests allow.
