The University of Northern Colorado Campus Arboretum

Description

Located in Greeley, Colorado, the University of Northern Colorado Campus Arboretum is set on a 250-acre campus. As the university celebrates its 125th birthday, designation as an Accredited Arboretum reflects the dreams of the First President, Dr. Zachariah Snyder and Landscape Architect Hans Hockbaum (of Cornell University).

Established in 1889, UNC fosters education about the science, beauty and importance of water conservation in this semi-arid North American region. The Campus Arboretum displays a collection of plants native to the Front Range region of Colorado and also of ecosystems around the world. Open to the public, the Campus Arboretum encompasses the grounds of many historic and contemporary buildings, displaying and interpreting its woody plant collections in a manner that reveals a sense of place in Northern Colorado. The historic landscape features more than 3,700 trees and hundreds of different woody plants with some heritage trees more than 100 years old.
