aster (Aster laevis)
is one of the woodland herbs whose habitat is
disappearing as nonnative species such as garlic-mustard
carpet the forest floor.
This area is under development.
Topics to be featured on this page include preserving the University's
well fields, restoring native flora, and preserving the land use
history of the Arboretum's 370 acres.
The vision for the Arboretum includes restoring
acres of native habitat, and providing interpretive
displays, lectures, and guided tours to promote an understanding
of the land's history and the importance of preserving its health.
The Arboretum Ecological Restoration
Group, composed of volunteers, works to support these efforts.
