Description

Colbys Arboretum is one of the most aesthetically appealing parts of the campus as well as one of the best educational tools we have. However, it is, unfortunately, underutilized by students and by the public. Theres so much to learn from this environment in terms of scientific study of the environment, but also in terms of self-reflection. The arboretum has been described as a place where one can think without pressure and the structure is guided by this idea of escape.
