Welcome Class of 2017!
Last week, Swarthmore College welcomed and oriented the class of 2017. During this orientation week, the Arboretum has traditionally offered first year students a houseplant to “green” their dorm room. Check out commentary on the benefits of greenery in your room.
We also introduced the new students to the Crum Woods and the concepts of stewardship and conservation by having them plant over 320 trees and shrubs in the woods. Click here to read more about these educational experiences and the native plants which found homes. Our hope is students will nurture their saplings over next four years to give them a good foundation and the ability to shade the next generations of Swarthmore students.
