Description

The University of Colorado Museum of Natural History and CU Facilities Management—Outdoor Services groups are hosting a free tour of CU’s unique historic campus “forest.” The tour will meet at the south entrance of the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History at 15th and Broadway (just west of the University Memorial Center) and will be led by veteran and Senior Grounds Specialist Alan Nelson.

Along with the spring blooms, Nelson will share the unique characteristics and special historical significance of these trees.

Since the time when the first plains cottonwoods were planted near Old Main CU’s tree population has grown to nearly 5,000 and more than 100 species, many imported from across the United States, Europe and Asia.
