Tree Trail Exhibit & Program
Did you know ODU had a Tree Trail? It's new! ODU’s “Tree Trail” provides an occasion to learn about thirty of the different varieties of trees on campus. Beginning at the Kaplan Orchid Conservatory, the trail meanders along the notable Quarantine Road and behind Webb Center, passes around the Engineering and Computational Sciences building and then around the pond of the Oceanography and Physics Buildings. Signage for each tree indicates common and scientific names and a brief description.
The ODU Libraries is recognizing and promoting the Tree Trail with an exhibit in the Learning Commons featuring photos, books, and some greenery. Come see the exhibit which runs through August 22 -- and be sure to walk the trail! A Website which complements the exhibit is also available.
And... Join the staff of the University Libraries for an informative talk and tour of ODU’s Tree Trail on Monday, August 6, 2012, 9:30 – 11:00am, in the Library Instruction Room 1306. Chad Peevy, ODU Grounds Department Supervisor, and Ed and Linda Bradley, local Master Gardeners, will talk briefly about campus trees, how the Tree Trail came about, and what things to look for when identifying trees. After that, we’ll have a walking tour of the Tree Trail.
