West Campus Tree Tour

Tree Tours are back: this time, we’ll bring opportunity for connectedness, wonder, and movement closer to our friends across the river. New route, new trees, same wonderful experience.

Join the Pentacrest Museums in partnership with liveWELL and UI Facilities Management for guided strolls on campus featuring the ecological diversity, symbolism, history, and lore of our trees. We'll use the lunch hour once in the spring (on Arbor Day!), summer, autumn, and winter on these nature walk & talks for discovery in this program—designed for you—with resilience and curiosity in mind.

  • Meet at the Field House parking lot, just outside the double doors.
  • Rain, snow or shine (we'll reschedule if lightning). 
  • All are welcome (students, staff/faculty, community).
  • Staff and faculty: our campus has encouraged programming of this nature for employee wellness. Make sure to let your supervisor know you'd like to attend if you need a little extra travel time before and after the walk.
