Arbor Day Tree Walk at the Don Opel Regional Arboretum
The campus of Highland Community College encompasses the Don Opel Regional Arboretum. You are invited to enjoy it and the 68 trees and shrubs on this tree walk over and over again.
Come in spring to see the blossoms and buds emerge and experience the color of the awakening landscape. Stroll through the campus during summer to relax on one of the many benches placed conveniently under shade trees. In autumn the trees put on their final show of spectacular color – you won’t want to miss that. Return in winter to witness the interesting branch structure and bark details.
As with any natural setting we ask only that you take out with you whatever you bring in and that the trees and shrubs remain undisturbed. Enjoy!
