Tree Tour: Summer 2024

Tree Tour: Summer 2024 promotional image

Join the Pentacrest Museums in partnership with liveWELL and UI Facilities Management for a guided stroll on campus featuring the ecological diversity, symbolism, history, and lore of our trees. We'll use the lunch hour for discovery in this program — designed for you — with resilience and curiosity, health and wellness in mind.

For this tour, we're delighted to be joined by the College of Pharmacy and Hardin Library for Health Sciences who will show us the medicinal garden and Roots of Medicine Initiative. Guests will receive seed packets in the garden to collect some takeaways and we will give away a few prizes at the end of the tour.
