Third Annual Arboretum Bioblitz! Sunday, June 21.



Mark your calendars! We will be hosting the Arboretum Bioblitz on Sunday, June 21 in the J.C. Taylor Nature Centre. Visitors are welcome to join us anytime between 10 am and 4 pm as we look for all things alive!  Many hikes will start at 10 am after a brief introduction but there will be instructors in the Taylor Nature Centre at all times and other hikes will start as people show up throughout the day.  You will also be able to survey on your own by taking photos of what you find and bringing them into the Taylor Nature Centre for identification. Last year we recorded over 400 species of plants, animals, lichens and fungi.   Amazing!

Arboretum Beginning

The Arboretum at the University of Guelph is somewhat modeled after the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University which is 100 years older.

Plantings started in 1971 and are now maturing to produce a beautiful landscape, within which The Arboretum continues to develop specialized gardens, botanical collections, and gene conservation programs.

Labels are maintained at the base of all woody plants in the collections that are listed on The Arboretum map.
