spacer spacer Arboretum and Gardens

The Arboretum and Gardens of Keene State College have been created to support the teaching, research, and public service mission of the College by:

  • preserving unique and/or mature plant specimens that may have historic value
  • developing and adopting a planned and botanically systematic approach to collecting and installing new and diverse plant material
  • creating a model outdoor field laboratory to promote botanical and horticultural awareness as an educational resource for the College, the community, and region
  • maintaining interpretive materials, including plant identification, accesion, mapping, and maintenance records
  • providing a visually appealing, diverse and cohesive, accessible landscape setting that provides a physical and emotional atmosphere conducive to academic advancement, recreation, and reflection

In its Class Notes section, most issues of Keene State Today include short articles from the college arborist.
Spring 2009

A printed brochure is currently being updated and will lead scholars and visitors on a self-guided walk through the central campus, introducing the ornamental trees and shrubs and the landscape history of the campus.
