Work and Research
Academic activities are encouraged and promoted. Studies could
assist with the documentation of environmental changes as
the arboreta age. From a wide array of student studies
ranging from water chemistry, bird censuses, insect collecting,
plant hardiness, landscape design, and phenology of flowering
data could be generated, publicized, and saved. Inventorying
the living trees in the Shattuck Arboretum and comparing that
to historical records is another potential class project.
Instructors are encouraged to share their findings with Arboretum
